Statistics Canada has confirmed what most farmers already know – Canada will produce significantly less canola in 2019.
Prairie growers are expected to produce 18.5 million tonnes of canola this year, down 9.3 percent from 20.3 million tonnes in 2018, StatCan said in a production report released in late August.
What is new, is that StatCan is using a new method to estimate crop yield and production in the summer.
Historically, StatCan has relied on farmer surveys in July to come up with yield and production data.
