Canary seed is usually a later crop to harvest, but farmers are making great progress this year and getting it in the bin.

At the beginning of this week 49% of Canary seed was reported to be in the bin, which is up significantly from the previous year, 16% at the same time. Agriculture Canada reports that production could reach 117,000MT based off 254,000 acres. This number is down a bit from last year, which produced around 140,000MT. Pricing on Canary seed has been trading around 21¢/lb for sound quality.
