Bulk Pea Exports Slump in January

WINNIPEG - Mar 3/21 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 135,000 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 December.

The CGC data does not include exports from non-reporting locations. 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 1,650,800 MT so far this marketing year, up 19% from the 1,083,300 loaded during the same period in the previous marketing year.

Movement during the month was down 41% from the 129,300 MT shipped the previous month and down 6% from the 143,300 MT shipped the same month last year.
