2016 Canola Harvest

Harvest season is a busy season for everyone involved, and this year was no exception. Trucks were lining up outside the factory to deliver the canola to the silo’s. 2016 will be remembered as one of the best canola years to date. The yield was exceptional in most areas and the weather played along so that the producers could harvest the canola relatively dry and quickly.

The harvest in total was 102 000 ton, a little less than expected originally but that was due to less hectares planted. The average yield per hectare was 1.8 ton/Ha.

The first intentions to plant canola looks really good and if everything goes well 2017 will be the biggest canola crop produced in the history of the company and South Africa. A big thanks to all involved in making harvest 2016 a big success.
