Beans Mixed But Pulses Weaker

PANAMA - Jul 20/18 - SNS -- International dry edible bean markets posted a mixed finish in relatively light trading during the past week.

With seeding essentially complete in the United States and crops in generally good condition, markets are starting to think more in terms of who will buy the pending crop rather than being influenced by weather and growing conditions.

This was reflected in the U.S. spot index for beans, which slipped 1.2 points on the week to finish at 120.6. Other major pulse price indices finished the week mixed.
