Bulk Pea Clearances Relax in October

WINNIPEG - Dec 10/18 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 182,800 metric tons (MT) field pea were loaded for export through licensed terminal and primary elevators which are required to report to it all grain movement in October.

The CGC data does not include exports in containers or from non-reporting terminals. It is important to recall that the CGC data may not match official export data. The CGC counts product when it is loaded to ships, while Statistics Canada bases its calculations on the bill of lading date.

This lifted bulk export loadings for field peas to 592,3 MT so far this marketing year, down 30% from the 845,600 loaded during the same period in the previous marketing year.
