CHS agronomist Ron Beneda is expecting canola acres to increase dramatically next season. Beneda thinks North Dakota canola acres could top 2 million. “We’ll see an increase in canola acres when we have good prices. Even at average yields, we can do well with those higher prices.” A few varieties may not be available, but canola seed availability is not expected to be a major issue. “The more popular, newer varieties that can be direct combined are likely sold out. The more popular varieties are sold out, but there should be enough to go around. They’re good varieties, but you may not be able to direct combine them.”
