NEW DELHI/OTTAWA. A lot of snow in Canadian growing areas might cause the coming sowing to start later than planned, and could bring more problems later on. In India, trade is rather slow at the moment.

Fewer weddings

The Indian chickpea crop is higher than last year due to increased acreage, but prices are currently receiving sufficient support as there are hardly any old crop commodities available. Overall, trade is rather sluggish at the moment, which market players explain, among other things, by the fact that fewer weddings are celebrated in India in April. The arrival of the new crop is relatively low on the important markets of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka, which is also due to the adverse weather conditions of the past weeks.
