Maize prices fell by Rs 6 to Rs 1,310 per quintal in futures trade today due to minimisation of holdings by participants in tandem with discouraging sentiments at the spot markets.
Marketmen said the downfall in maize futures prices was due to tepid demand for poultry feed makers amid mounting of stocks on persistent arrivals.
At the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, maize delivery for September eased by Rs 6, or 0.46 per cent, to Rs 1,310 per quintal, in an open interest of 2,730 lots.
