Mumbai, 22 March (Commoditiescontrol): Canada is benefitting from increased Turkish lentil imports, which have grown due to the country meeting the soaring demand from one of its re-export markets. The increase in demand for Turkish red lentils has been driven by the Iraqi government tendering for pulses, causing a need for the country to import more from Canada and other suppliers.

However, this year's Turkish imports are predicted to be around 350,000 to 400,000 tonnes, down from the previous years due to the anticipation of a large domestic crop, despite the country experiencing the driest period on record in over 60 years. Nevertheless, the red lentil crop in Turkey has not suffered the same fate, as 90% of the country's red lentils are produced in the country's southeastern region, which has only experienced moderate dryness.

Turkish growers planted 1.6 million acres of red lentils, and harvest begins in May and continues until the end of June. They anticipate a red lentil crop of 230,000 to 250,000 tonnes, similar to last year's production and double the year before, which was a drought year.

Canada is expected to retain its stranglehold on the Turkish market despite Australia's bumper harvest of 1.4 million tonnes of red lentils, a 40% increase over the previous year, as Turkish processors do not like the quality and logistical problems associated with the Australian product.
