Good Start To Season's Bulk Exports

WINNIPEG - Oct 1/19 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 97,000 metric tons (MT) field pea were loaded for export through licensed terminal and primary elevators which are required to report to it all grain movement in August.

The CGC data does not include exports in containers or from non-reporting terminals. It is important to recall that the CGC data may not match official export data. The CGC counts product when it is loaded to ships, while Statistics Canada bases its calculations on the bill of lading date.

Movement during the month was down 50% from the 195,300 MT shipped the previous month but 44% above the 67,300 MT shipped the same month last year.
