Canadian canola area shrinks

Canadian farmers expect to plant some 19.1 million acres (7.7 million ha) of canola this year, down 11.1% on the area grown in 2012. That would be the first decrease in the country’s canola plantings since 2006, according to Statistics Canada. The March survey of planting intentions points to reduced canola plantings in all provinces where the crop is grown. The area in Saskatchewan is expected to fall by 10.9% to 10 million acres, with declines of 8.6% in Alberta and 15.8% in Manitoba.
