Underlying Softness in Lentils

PANAMA - Oct 6/17 - SNS -- The underlying tone of international lentil markets remained soft during the past week.

Spot markets have been supported by relatively good opening season export movement.

In August, Canadian shipments were up 21,000 metric tons (MT) from the last year at 47,804 MT; while export movement from the United States was up just over 3,000 MT at 20,105.
