The prices of black gram, pigeon pea and green gram climbed in mid-December 2023 in the domestic market, touching highs of K2.98 million per tonne for black gram (Fair Average Quality), K3.237 million for black gram (Special Quality), K3.12 million for pigeon pea, K2,565-2,920 per viss of green gram from the Pakokku area and K3,750 per viss of green gram (Shwewah) from the Kayan area respectively on 16 December.
The newly harvested pigeon pea price rose to K100,000 per basket in mid-December from K90,000 per basket in early December.
Similarly, the prices jumped to K95,000 per basket of black gram and K62,000 per basket of green gram.
The price of black gram (urad) was relatively stable at 8,500 rupees per quintal in India, the leading buyer of Myanmar’s pulses. In contrast, the price of pigeon pea (tur) indicated a two per cent decrease, with 9,700 rupees per quintal.
The pulses prices were registered at K1.782 million per tonne for black gram (Fair Average Quality), K1.76 million for pigeon pea, K2,165-2,250 per viss of green gram from Pakokku area and K2,830-3,000 per viss of green gram (Shwewah) from Kayan area in the corresponding period last year.
The figures reflected a significant rise of more than K1 million per tonne of black gram and pigeon pea and K700 per viss for green gram. Thus, the growers are likely to reap a handsome profit this year. — TWA/KK
