2017 Canola crop hit by dry weather

Recent rains have done little to improve forecast yields

Recent rains have bolstered growers confidence after one of the driest June months on record in many canola growing regions. However, we are reluctant to lift forecast yields at this time.

Reported area sown in WA and SA has been reduced from earlier estimates as dry sown canola in some areas failed to germinate and has been re-sown to cereals. NSW and Victoria crops are looking good at this stage, but well in need of more rain.
