Statistics Canada maintains the previous estimate of Canada’s canola balance sheet. The area of ​​the 2023 harvest, at 8.7 million hectares, is expected to exceed the previous year’s result by 1.3%. Based on average yields of 21.2 t/ha, approximately 18.5 million t could be extracted from the fields, nearly 2% more than in 2022. In addition to initial stocks of 900,000 t, l he Canadian canola supply is expected to be around 19.4 million t reach.

For the current marketing campaign, it is estimated at 19.1 million t. The increase in supply increases the country’s export potential which, at 8.8 million t, is estimated to be around 200,000 t more than in 2022/23. In addition to the likely larger Canadian supply, the advantage is also based on the assumption of continued strong global demand for oilseeds and their by-products.
