However, downside seen limited amid less area in Telangana and unseasonal rains, also expectations of better export demand supporting the prices. Turmeric exports in the first 5 months (April-August) of FY 2021-22 declined by 25% to 64,600 tonnes as compared to the same period last year, but almost at the same level as the 5-year average. There were also reports of export demand from Europe, Gulf countries and Bangladesh. However upside seen limited amid prospects of the better crop this Kharif season along with tepid demand.
  
The areas where turmeric has been sown have received adequate rainfall and are expected to produce well in the next season. Due to favourable weather, production is likely to be higher in 2021-22 (July-June) season. Besides, heavy carryover stocks and slack in bulk demand are keeping prices under pressure.
