Mustard Holds Steady

PANAMA - May 15/20 - SNS -- North American mustard seed markets were little changed in seasonally light trading activity during the past week.

Unlike pulses, grower bids for mustard seed have been relatively stable since the start of the calendar year and unaffected by the idea land in the crop will be little changed from last year.
