Canola TV- Gene Neuens Talks Canola Crushing and Canola in 2012Tue, 16 Aug 2011 19:47:43 CDT
In the latest edition of Canola TV, Gene Neuens of Producers Cooperative Oil Mill gives us an update on the process for canola now that harvest is complete, as well as, what producers should consider as we prepare for the 2012 crop season.
Neuens says as they begin crushing the canola, this canola crop does not look as good as last year. With a 4-5% decrease in oil and an increase in fatty acid, which comes from the heat in the field, the quality of canola for 2011 will be lower according to Neuens. Also, PCOM plans to begin crushing canola from local producers and producers in North Dakota.
As producers gear up for the 2012 crop year, Neuens suggests looking at the economics of canola compared to wheat. Neuens says there is a significant demand for canola that will only continue to grow in the upcoming year.
