Pulse and Special Crops Outlook
Pulse Canada
Area seeded to pulse and special crops for 2004-05 in Canada is forecast to increase by 4%, as higher seeded areas for dry peas, lentils, canary seed and chick peas more than offset lower areas for dry beans, mustard seed and sunflower seed. Statistics Canada's (STC) seeding intentions survey, conducted during March 24-31 and released on April 23, provided forecasts of areas seeded for most of the pulse and special crops by province but, in some cases, the area seeded has been forecast by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. The actual seeded areas may differ from the intentions due to changes in market outlook, expected prices, producer reaction to the STC seeding intentions report and, especially, soil moisture conditions at seeding time. To date, only a small amount of seeding has been completed. It is assumed that precipitation will be normal for the rest of the spring and summer. However, for Saskatchewan and Alberta, due to low moisture reserves in most areas, yields are forecast to be below trend. For the other provinces, trend yields are forecast. It has been assumed that abandonment and average quality will be normal.

For 2004-05, total pulse and special crops production is forecast to increase by 10%, from 2003-04, to 4.03 million tonnes (Mt). Total supply is expected to increase by only 5%, because of lower carry-in stocks, to 4.62 Mt. Exports and domestic use are forecast to increase due to the higher supply and strong demand, resulting in moderately higher carry-out stocks. Average prices, over all grades and markets, are forecast to increase from 2003-04 for dry beans, chick peas and sunflower seed, decrease for dry peas, lentils, mustard seed and canary seed, and be the same for buckwheat. However, prices are expected to be very sensitive to any production problems due to low world carry-in stocks. The main factors to watch will be precipitation during the spring and summer in western Canada, the exchange rate of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar and other currencies, and growing conditions in the major producing countries, especially the US, Australia, India, France and Turkey.
