Slow Month For Bulk Pea Exports

WINNIPEG - Dec 2/21 - SNS -- The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 136,200 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 September.

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 for the marketing year to 642,900 MT, down 43% from the 1,136,700 loaded during the previous marketing year.

Movement during the month was down 68% from the 431,200 MT shipped the previous month and down 60% from the 343,900 MT shipped the same month last year.
