Sunflower Growers Hoping For Bump In Acres In 2020

The National Sunflower Association of Canada (NSAC) held its AGM last week in Winnipeg at CropConnect.
Executive Director Darcelle Graham commented on the past growing season.
"We had a little bump in acres which was nice," she said. "Of course, when harvested acreage reports come out, probably it's not going to show that they've all been harvested, which is in fact the case after a wet fall...Initial reports in terms of yields show a little decrease from last year but still really good overall average."
Graham looked ahead to the 2020 growing season.
"We're hoping to see that we get an increase in acres, a little bump. We see that the oil side of things is providing some new market opportunities. Pricing seems to be good, so we're hoping that growers take advantage of that and put some acres in the ground."
