Soya beans, groundnuts and sugar beans are some of the legumes that have fetched good prices on the local market the week ending 11 April, a report indicates.

The report by Auction Holdings (AHL) Commodities Exchange shows that Sugar beans went as high as 400 Kwacha per kg in Lilongwe, soya going at 200 Kwacha in Mponela, however groundnuts have remained constant at 385 Kwacha per kilogram.

This is unlike maize, which is at 101 Kwacha per kg with a projection of 115 Kwacha per kg this week.

On the other hand, groundnuts sold the most in the week with a volume of about 64 percent with 17 percent of soya beans, pigeon peas at 13 percent and 5 percent of maize.

The AHL Commodities Exchange officials say the prices will vary in different places depending on the performance of the crop on the preceding day.
