Prices continue to spiral upwards. Last growing season severe drought followed by cyclones damaged the crop. Many farmers reportedly have switched to food crops.
Same situation as with Litsea and Lemongrass, being used as a source of Geraniol.

Here too, prices firm as drought in growing regions has not been fully compensated by monsoon rains.
