Cargill Specialty Canola Oils Program Kicks Into High Gear
WINNIPEG, Nov. 30 /CNW/ - To keep pace with the exceptional and
continuous demand for healthy high oleic specialty canola oils, Cargill is
reminding growers to lock in next season crops to guarantee a continuous
supply of such oils for consumers and food companies.
With strong canola prices, Cargill's Specialty Canola Oils Program allows
growers to establish a risk free price hedge on the first 10 bushels an acre
of production. They also have the opportunity to establish an attractive prime
basis that can provide over $11 a bushel to many growers and a significantly
higher per acre return above commodity canola.
In addition to solid markets and reliable risk free pricing, growers can
count on the program for exceptional agronomic advantage, excellent yield,
effective weed control, superior per acre returns, grower selected delivery
periods, and on-farm pick up where available.
Cargill's Specialty Canola Oils Program is built on the strength of
VICTORY(R) and InVigor(R) Health Hybrids, and participating growers are
helping Cargill lead the way in delivering healthy alternatives to over
150 end-use companies.
Cargill has added unique features to further enhance the contracting
program for 2008. These include new flagship VICTORY(R) hybrids with the
Roundup Ready trait for top performance, plus the introduction of InVigor(R)
Health hybrids containing LibertyLink(R) technology for exceptional strength.
