Birdseeds Maintain Strength

PANAMA - Nov 22/19 - SNS -- Birdseed ingredient markets were generally firmer during the past week despite a seasonal slowing in trading activity.

Oil type sunflower and white proso millet markets maintained their recent upward trend, while Canadian canaryseed was little changed in spot shipping positions.

In its final crop report of the year, Saskatchewan Agriculture estimated canaryseed yields in the province were closer to 1,188 pounds per acre than the 942 forecast by Statistics Canada in September.
