Like most crops in North Dakota, excess moisture has kept some seeds out of the canola fields. Despite fewer acres, officials are saying canola should be strong enough for good returns and keep North Dakota as the number one canola producer in the U.S.
In 2010, North Dakota produced 89 percent of the nation’s canola crop, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agriculture Statistics Service. North Dakota saw a 27 percent decrease in the number of acres planted compared to last year.
