hearing Canada's canola hit by frost

seed hard to come by, ja


Million acres less harvested canola crop impacts US soy market-


"Farmers have until mid- to late June to plant ahead of insurance deadlines, but the later they sow canola, the higher the risk of damage later from heat or frost. Canada is the biggest producer and exporter of canola, used to produce vegetable oil."

Re: hearing Canada's canola hit by frost

Nd had frost damage on May 29 again to its canola crop again with large acreages of reseed going on. Cavalier county was hard hit largest producer of canola in North Dakota temperatires were in low 20's for some producers this is third time seeding their crop this year. I would expect large portion of Canada experienced same conditions as North Dakota did. Also its been raining since the frost damage so its been difficult to get the crop reseeded will need good long fall to get this crop in.
