Canada Pulse Outlook
For 2004-05, total Canadian pulse and special crops production increased by 42%, from 2003-04, to 5.23 million tonnes (Mt), based on Statistics Canada’s (STC) November production estimates. Total pulse and special crops supply increased by only 33% to 5.81 Mt, because of lower carry-in stocks. Although exports and domestic use are forecast to increase due to the higher supply, strong demand and lower prices for most crops, carry-out stocks are also expected to increase. Average prices, over all grades and markets, are forecast to increase from 2003-04 for dry beans, chickpeas and sunflower seed, decrease for dry peas, lentils, mustard seed and canary seed, and be the same for buckwheat.

Harvesting of pulse and special crops was much later than normal, but is, in general, complete. Average yields ranged from lower than trend to higher than trend, depending on the crop, but abandonment was generally higher than normal. Yields were much lower than trend and abandonment much higher than normal for dry beans and buckwheat in Manitoba and sunflower seed in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, due to late seeding, below normal temperatures and damage from excessive rainfall, frost and disease. Average quality is, in general, lower than normal due to damage from frost and wet weather. The main factors to watch are exchange rates, ocean shipping rates, and crop and harvest conditions in other major producing countries, especially Australia, India and Pakistan.

CHICKPEAS Production and supply fell, due to a 26% decrease in seeded area and higher abandonment. Production increased marginally for the large and small kabuli types, but decreased for the desi type. However, supply decreased for all types due to lower carry-in stocks. The average quality is significantly lower than in

2003-04. World supply decreased by 5% to 8.3 Mt. Canadian exports are forecast to decrease due to lower supply. Carry-out stocks are forecast to decrease to a low level. The average price, over all types, sizes and grades, is forecast to increase due to the lower supply.

LENTILS Production and supply increased, due to a 41% increase in seeded area and higher yields. Production increased for large, medium and small green, red and other types. The average quality is significantly lower than in 2003-04. World supply increased by 14% to 3.62 Mt, due mainly to higher production in Canada. Canadian exports are expected to increase, as Canada's share of world supply increases and prices decrease. Carry-out stocks are forecast to increase, with a s/u of 19%. The average price, over all types and grades, is forecast to decrease due to the higher supply and lower average quality.
