Mustard Values Hold Steady

PANAMA - Jul 6/18 - SNS -- North American mustard seed markets were unchanged in seasonally light trade during the past week.

The latest official export data for Canada shows that movement is down from last year, reaching almost 97,000 metric tons (MT) between August and May. Shipments are down 9% from the same period last year and 8% below the recent five year average of 105,623 MT.

Movement to the United States is down roughly 6,000 MT from last season. Part of the reason could be recent increases in U.S. domestic mustard seed production.
