TIANJIN: Recently, an epidemic has occurred in China’s lentil producing areas, and traders have become more challenging to purchase, and prices are reasonable and high, and there is no downward trend. The export market is sluggish, and the number of orders has fallen. Orders cannot meet the production needs of exporters, and most manufacturers conduct domestic and foreign trade simultaneously. The domestic market is mainly wholesale, and traders rely on low-priced imported lentils to meet production needs. Domestic lentils are not competitive.

The quality requirements of the domestic market are lower than the export standards. Some importers mainly purchase low-priced lentils from Canada and Turkey to maintain production demand. In terms of prices, farmers are not willing to sell at low prices, prices are stable, and the export market is full of difficulties. Traders predict that prices will not fluctuate sharply in the short term.
