Lentils Moderately Easier

PANAMA - Feb 24/20 - SNS -- International lentil markets closed the week's trading on a moderately easier note, with importers showing limited interest in covering outstanding needs.

Bulk export movement from Canada continues at a relatively strong pace, with shipments so far this season and deliveries by growers remaining well above last year.

Markets were not overly concerned by a forecast increase in India's rabi season harvest from 1.23 million metric tons (MT) last year to an estimated 2.2 million this year.
