Expansion of the global rapeseed cultivation area by 2%

The International Grains Council (IGC) expects the global area under rapeseed to increase to 40 million ha. That would be a good 2 % more than in the current growing season. The historically high price level is contributing to this. A larger cultivation area is expected, especially in the important growing regions such as Canada and the European Union. Many farmers are motivated to expand their rapeseed acreage again due to the producer prices.
