Our Services

LeftField is your research department, supporting better marketing decisions and giving you confidence. We are not a market advisory/recommendation company. We don't tell you how to make decisions. You've got the smarts. We add the research and rationale.

 

Our core offering is ongoing market analysis for Canadian grains, oilseeds and special crops. LeftField Commodity Research covers all Canadian crops in its analysis, but the scope is global. Three regular weekly services are provided - the Special Crops Letter, the Canola & Soy Letter and the Small Grains Letter. We also offer bundled packages for companies, organizations and farms looking to take advantage of all 3 letters. LeftField has built an unparalleled information base with extensive data about Canadian and global crop markets. We dig in obscure places for data, news and information to see what (if any) relevance and value it has for clients.

Farm Market Letter

Some farmers really enjoy the depth of analysis in our three full reports, but we’ve also heard it can be “too much information”, especially when time is at a premium. As a result, we’ve developed a new Farm Market Letter, a single weekly report geared toward farmers, normally sent late Thursday. Consider this another tool to keep you up to date and well informed about factors influencing the markets.

 

For each crop, we provide bullish and bearish factors, our market stance/opinion and a key chart of the week. The Farm Market Letter doesn’t contain the complete analysis, commentary and charts of our regular reports but still covers the high points for six small grains, two oilseeds and eight (four each week) special crops. A bid sheet and price charts are also included.

Please note: the Farm Market Letter is not intended to make sales recommendations and we’re not trying to replace other advisory services.
