New Delhi, Aug 29 (PTI) Potato prices rose by Rs 4.40 to Rs 492.50 per quintal in futures trade today as speculators created fresh positions on the back of a pick-up in spot market demand amid restricted arrivals.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, potato for delivery in October rose by Rs 4.40, or 0.90 per cent, to Rs 492.50 per quintal, with a business turnover of 251 lots.
