Canada August bulk pea movement off 67%.

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) reports 94,900 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 August. The CGC data does not include exports in containers or from non-reporting terminals. 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. The CGC reports exports are down 67% from the 292,000 MT shipped the same month last year. Of bulk peas loaded to for export during the month, 94,300 MT went through Vancouver terminals; and 600 MT were shipped direct from Prairie elevators to destinations in the United States.
