Cotton seed oil cakes
Cotton seed oil cake (CoC) prices at the benchmark Akola market are trading at Rs 2,865 per quintal. For the week ahead, CoC prices are expected to increase by Rs 30-50 per quintal and head towards Rs 2,900 per quintal amid lower availability. Lower rainfall distribution in major cotton area coupled with increasing demand of CoC is likely to support prices in near term.
