Field Peas Remain Firm

PANAMA - Sep 22/23 - SNS -- Field pea markets maintained their relatively firm tone through the past week, helped by relatively strong opening season movement and an apparent tightening of stocks on farms.

Rising bids to farmers in Canada and a tightening of spreads between high and low bids helped lift nominal export values.

The greatest strength remains in specialty peas such as maple, followed by greens, with yellows trailing by a wide margin because of a more ample supply situation.
