Birdseeds Hold Firm Tone

PANAMA - Aug 6/17 - SNS -- Birdseeds ingredient markets finished the week with a mostly firmer undertone against ongoing worries about yields in both the United States and Canada.

White proso millet seed markets in the United States finished the week on a stronger footing in both grower and inter-dealer markets. Canadian canaryseed markets were little changed, but with processors somewhat defensive against fears of significantly below average yields in key growing areas.

By contrast, sunflower markets gave back some of the gains from the past two weeks, noted the U.S. based National Sunflower Association (NSA).
