China: Pulses - Kidney Beans and Dried Peas

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2021-0114

China’s marketing year (MY) 2021/2022 (September – August) kidney bean production is estimated at 250,000 metric tons (MT), down 15 percent on lower area harvested. China’s kidney bean exports declined significantly in the last several years due to a decline in quality and higher production costs. Dried pea imports in MY 2021/22 are estimated at 3.1 million metric tons (MMT), a 5 percent increase from MY 2020/21 driven by strong demand from the feed industry. Industry members report dried pea imports are price sensitive as the market looks for alternative feed products in the face of high domestic feed prices.
