There is a lull in the market for this crop. Prices are falling while the new crop is eagerly awaited. Considering present market circumstances and the demand-supply ratio, acreage is expected to increase. Mentha arvensis planting began from the end of February. The crop may stretch out till the end of March or even early April – a little later than the usual planting period. Naturally, this deferral in planting will also delay harvesting and distillation, which will be late by around 15 to 20 days. Hence there is the apprehension of loss of yield of final crop output due to onset of early monsoons. Mentha arvensis oil is fetching better prices for the farmers in comparison to Menthe piperita oil.
