Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada still estimates this year's production at 552,000 mt, a 13.6% rise on last year. Coupled with carry-ins this season's supplies should amount to 626,000 mt.

Farmgate prices have risen sharply in Manitoba and are quoted at CAD 562.57/mt (approx. EUR 360/mt). Rayglen Commodities states that prices are approaching a 10-year high. Brown
