Bulk Pea Export Pace Slowed in June

WINNIPEG - Jul 29/20 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 197,900 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 June.

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.

This lifted bulk export loadings for field peas to 2,452,400 MT so far this marketing year, up 27% from the 1,927,000 loaded during the same period in the previous marketing year.

Movement during the month was down 40% from the 328,700 MT shipped the previous month and 15% below the 231,700 MT shipped the same month last year.
