Kim Anderson Talking Canola Price Outlook on SUNUP- Plus Check the Program Lineup For This WeekendThu, 21 Apr 2011 20:56:25 CDT
With over a hundred thousand acres of canola planted in Oklahoma last fall, farmers are not just growing a rotational crop for wheat, they are also looking at a crop that can make them some money- and OSU Extension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says that he sees a stable, strong market for canola, based on demand for oilseed crops domestically and internationally. Anderson told Lyndall Stout for the upcoming SUNUP program that will air this Saturday on OETA that what farmers are really interested in is a crop that can provide a profitable return on their investment- and winter canola seems to fit that bill.
Dr. Anderson also talked briefly about the current wheat market, which he continues to regard as high- and said with all of the uncertainty regarding production, this is a year to not pull the trigger on marketing any more of the crop until harvest.
