Despite a 37% jump in volumes, average prices of tobacco stayed firm at last year's record levels in Karnataka, where auctions came to an end this week. An estimated 98.72 million kg of tobacco were sold. The traded volumes this year were about 4% higher than the authorised crop size of 95 million kg fixed by the Tobacco Board for Karnataka in 2016.
