May 2018 Peas Prices Recap

Peas prices over May did fluctuate a bit but ended the month basically where it began.

More specific specifically, old crop green peas prices are currently sitting around $8.50 CAD per bushel, although we did see some trades on the FarmLead Marketplace for $9.25 – $9.40.

For yellow peas prices, $7 CAD per bushel seemed to be consistently the bid seen at elevators across the Canadian Prairies. In the US Northern Plains, yellow peas prices ranged from $5.75 to $7 USD per bushel with trades happening on the FarmLead Marketplace across this range.

On the Canadian movement front, peas is the only pulse crop that is experiencing decent activity, thanks to strong farmer deliveries and Chinese buyers filling in for India’s absence.

What other factors have we been covering or have impacted peas prices?

And of course, we reported on the dry weather conditions across Western Canada.
