A recent question from a producer was posed to me regarding weakness in the canary seed market despite the tight supply situation as presented by Statistics Canada and Agriculture and Agri Food Canada supply and demand data.

Tuesday's Dec. 31 stocks report did indeed point to how tight the situation is, on paper. Dec. 31 stocks were reported at 81,000 metric tonnes, down from 113,000 mt in December 2012, while the five-year average of stocks held on Dec. 31 is 153,000 mt. Dec. 31, 2013, stocks are the lowest reported by Statistics Canada in data going back to December 2000.
