Birdseeds Hold Firm

PANAMA - Nov 29/19 - SNS -- North American birdseed ingredient markets maintained their firm tone through the past week, helped by the slow pace of the sunflower seed harvest in the United States.

Confection sunflower, canaryseed and white proso millet were unchanged on the week, while oil type sunflower advanced.

Discussing markets, the U.S. based National Sunflower Association said, "A late harvest has crush plants searching for seed supplies. This is a bright spot for farmers looking to market this year's crop as nearby prices are stronger than normal for this time of the year."
