Birdseeds Nominally Unchanged

PANAMA - Apr 13/18 - SNS -- Birdseed ingredient markets were nominally unchanged during the past week in seasonally light trade.

The market focus is turning increasingly to seeding prospects, with the start of spring planting rapidly approaching in several key areas.

However, several areas are expecting a late start because of cooler than normal temperatures. By itself, that would be expected to cause some farmers to move away from intentions reported to the USDA.
