Canada: Pulse and Special Crops Outlook
Pulse Canada
For 2003-04, total pulse and special crops production increased by 37%, from 2002-03, to 3.67 million tonnes (Mt), based on Statistics Canada's (STC) November production estimates, which were released on December 5. Total supply increased by only 23% because of lower carry-in stocks. Total exports and domestic use are forecast to increase, due to higher supply and strong demand, resulting in lower carry-out stocks. Average prices, over all grades and markets, are forecast to increase from 2002-03 for dry beans, chick peas and buckwheat, be the same for lentils, and decrease for dry peas, mustard seed, canary seed and sunflower seed. Canadian pulse and special crops prices are being pressured, to a varying degree, by the stronger Canadian dollar, compared to US and some other currencies, and sharply higher ocean freight rates

For most crops in western Canada, yields were below trend, due to delayed seeding, hot and dry weather, and insect damage, but higher than in 2002-03. For eastern Canada, trend yields are forecast. Harvesting was much quicker than in 2002-03 and significantly faster than normal, with the exception of dry beans in eastern Canada, which were harvested later than normal. Crop abandonment was normal and crop quality is normal for dry beans, mustard seed, canary seed, sunflower seed and buckwheat, and higher than normal for dry peas, lentils and chick peas. In 2002-03, crop abandonment was much higher than normal and quality lower than normal for most pulse and special crops, due to wet weather in western Canada during harvest. The main factors to watch are the exchange rate of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar and other currencies, ocean freight rates, and growing and harvest conditions in major producing countries, especially in Australia, India, Pakistan, Mexico and Argentina.
