LeftField offers independent market analysis of Canadian crop markets and economic research related to Canadian agriculture. LeftField has built an unparalleled information base with extensive data about Canadian and global crop markets.

LeftField Commodity Research covers all Canadian crops in its analysis. Three regular weekly services are offered:

1. Fundamental analysis of special crop markets with its weekly Special Crops Letter covering peas, lentils, chickpeas, flax, sunflowers, canaryseed, mustard and dry beans. See a sample of the Special Crops Letter at this link: Sample Special Crops Letter

In addition to the weekly report, the Special Crops Service includes:
  • Timely updates of important government reports from Canada and the US.
  • Feedback opportunities for clients who wish to call or e-mail with questions.
  • Data access for clients who occasionally need statistics from our files.

2. Analysis of markets for small grains - spring wheat, durum, barley, oats and (sometimes) rye - in its weekly Small Grains Letter. The Small Grains Letter provides concise, relevant Canadian and global market information.
