WINNIPEG, July 6 (MarketsFarm) – Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) futures canola contracts were higher on Monday morning.
Support was coming from gains in the Chicago soy complex along with European rapeseed. Meanwhile, Malaysian palm oil was slightly lower.
After a weekend of turbulent weather, the forecast is calmer at the start of the week across the Prairies. The hottest temperatures will be in the eastern part of the region with things somewhat cooler in Alberta. Rain isn’t expected until mid-week.
