World lentil production appears to have fallen short of world demand for the 2009 / 10 marketing year. This has resulted in strong current prices for lentils and farmers wanting to expand acreages on the farm. At the Pulse Days conference at #cropweek in Saskatoon are excited about the potential of lentils as demand expands globally for lentils.
Brian Clancey of STAT Publishing talked to me about what he thinks the outlook is for the lentil market in 2010. How much will acres expand? Will the price drop with expanded acres? What considerations should farmers make if they are considering growing lentils for the first time?
