Cardamom on MCX settled down -0.77% at 1014.8 on profit booking after prices gained on decline in arrivals at auctions held in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Delayed arrival of south west monsoon in the cardamom growing regions has delayed the harvesting and that in turn has resulted in thin supplies, according to market sources.

Meanwhile, upcountry buyers, by and large, are said to be still faced with teething troubles of the GST and until they are able to get into the track the demand is likely to remain limited.

At the same time, export enquiries are there but availability of exportable grade material is tight. The required size of capsules will start arriving only from the second round of picking which will begin from mid-August.

Last week, arrivals dropped to 170 tonnes from 191 tonnes the previous week. Total arrivals during the current season up to July 7, 2017 were at 19,396 tonnes and the sales were at 18,452 tonnes.

The arriving new crop has 8% moisture content as it is from the first picking. The second round of picking is likely to start by mid-August, followed by third and fourth rounds, which will continue until February.

With production of cardamom expected to rise in 2017-18 (Jul-Jun) due to good summer rains and southwest monsoon, prices may decline further.
