NEW DELHI – Jeera futures rose on the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange today due to firm demand and weak production outlook, while coriander contracts fell due to sluggish demand amid lean season, market participants said. 


* The most-active JEERA January contract was at 34,110 rupees per 100 kg, up 1.8% from the previous close. On Tuesday, the contract hit a new record high of 34,660 rupees per 100 kg. 


* Jeera acreage in the main growing state of Gujarat has fallen 8.4% on year to 274,995 ha, according to the state government data released on Monday. Jeera is typically sown from October to December, while fresh crop arrivals start from March. 


* Jeera production has declined in Syria and Turkey, leading producers, improving the prospects of global demand for Indian jeera, analysts said.
