Canadian Canola Farmers Left With Record Unsold Surplus Amid Chinese Trade Tensions, Slumping Export

As trade tensions with China negatively affect shipments, Canada’s canola farmers will carry over an “all time record high” volume of unsold canola into next season, breaking a record set five years ago.

As of March 31, the country’s canola stocks increased by 10.5 percent over a year before, and Statistics Canada forecasted that by the end of the season on July 31, farmers will likely be left with 3.5 million tons of canola moving into the next season - surpassing the previous carry-over record of 3.1 million tons set in 2014.

Compounding the problem, if the carry-over gets too big, it will only serve to intensify the challenges being faced by further pressuring prices.
