New Delhi, Aug 16 (PTI) Coriander prices fell 2.32 per cent to Rs 4,828 a quintal in futures market today as participants cut down positions amid muted domestic as well as export demand against ample stocks position.
Besides, rising arrivals from major producing belts and profit-booking at higher levels weighed on the sentiment.

On similar lines, the contract for this month's delivery was trading at Rs 4,812, down by 1.75 per cent or Rs 86. The open interest of the contract stood at 840 lots.
