Canadian canola damaged by winter snows may head to biodiesel market

April 25, 2017 |

In Canada, biofuel is expected to be a key market for the more than a million acres of canola across the western part of the country that have spent the winter under snow because winter arrived earlier than expected and is only now beginning to thaw. As much as 900,000 metric tons of oilseed may have to be diverted out of the human food chain due to poor quality, but biofuel and animal feed can still use it as feedstock. Only about 20% of what was left in the fields is expected to be high enough quality for human consumption.
