Carry overstock is also very high and traders and stockists can also see a cash crunch situation, making purchases as needed. The festival season is almost coming to an end with orders decreasing in the Middle East, America, Europe as well as Southeast Asia and domestic markets.

With the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh government having announced MSP for 24 crops, including turmeric, Telangana farmers are also looking for some government support. The AP government has offered ?6,550/quintal as MSP for the crop.
