Midsouth Pecans:

Very light farmer deliveries, slow demand

BATON ROUGE Shipping Point Prices as of November 10, 2009

Provided by: Fruit and Vegetable Market News, Federal-State Market News Service, USDA.

Deliveries by growers have been very light, trading is slow. There has been a break in the weather this week and growers are beginning to harvest again. Many are preparing the orchard floors, clearing debris and checking the nuts already on the ground. Most will have to remove excess moisture and any mold or rot that had established earlier. Newly shaken and harvested nuts will be in good demand once they are harvested and made available for sale.

Accumulation buying points reported only very light offerings of yard trees, primarily that of Natives/Seedling and very few Improved varieties. There is a wide range in the quality of nuts being offered for sale. Interest has been moderate even though volumes have been light. Demand has been steady with most of the buying interest primarily from the giftpack sector looking for lots with fairly high quality and appropriate unit count. Most of the nuts harvested earlier are being offered for retail sales instead of going to the commercial shellers for sale, causing a gap in available offerings.

A few of the accumulators have temporarily postponed taking in new offerings, having a wait and see approach to determine whether the market will stabilize. Some of the nuts that have been delivered still have not been priced, and growers are waiting for offers. Most growers have indicated offerings to improve in volume starting next week or just before the Thanksgiving holiday season begins.

Prices paid to growers (from noon Thursday, November 5, 2009, through late afternoon Tuesday, November 10, 2009) at buyers delivery point or f.o.b. the orchard including direct sales to end users, cents per pound in-shell of generally good quality in lots of 20,000 pounds or less unless otherwise stated.

Natives (deliveries very light) yard tree lots of generally good quality 40-55 fair quality 25-35 Stuart (deliveries very light) yard tree lots of generally good quality 40-50 fair quality 25-35

Purchases and sales of other lots and varieties are insufficient in number to establish market prices.
