Market Update June 2010

During the month both Pulse Australia and ABARE released their latest reports. 

Chick peas – Desi type.

Market was quiet for much of the month with a sudden burst of interest in the last few days. Bids from Karachi traders were a round US$475 CFRC1 level for July shipment. For new crop there is concern among exporters of the amount of chick peas already forward sold and the capacity of transport & logistics to cope. Estimates of new crop sales range from 130-150,000mt. 

Chick peas – Kabuli.

There was good interest during the month for mixed size 6 &7 MM Kabulis both bulk and bagged to traditional markets like Pakistan and Middle East.


Market Update May 2010


Seeding has started over most of South Australia, lesser than average rains earlier in the month caused many farmers to put seeding on hold but good rains last week bolstered confidence and seeding resumed.

In Victoria good rains through the Wimmera & Mallee have allowed seeding to proceed on good moisture profiles. In some areas reseeding will be necessary due to locust damage.


Seeding now around 60% complete for red lentils. Heavy rains over most of Saskatchewan in the last few days will mean that seeding will STOP while the ground dries out. Still too early to know if this delay to planting will affect the final planted area or production. Local traders are saying that farmers will be defensive until summer months when they can see how crop is progressing.
