Canadian acreage devoted to oilseed-type soybeans grew by 80% between 2008 and 2014 alone.
Canada has an extensive, modern system for handling and transporting bulk commodities bound for export markets.
As more short-season varieties are developed, Canada is becoming a more important supplier of soybeans grown for processing into oil and meal.
One advantage of oilseed-type soybeans from Canada is the high protein levels encouraged by cooler climates. Plant researchers are building on this advantage by developing traits in tune with the evolving requirements of the food and feed industries.
Soybean buyers can count on Canada’s well-developed infrastructure for grain handling, grading and transport. Efficient road and rail systems connect to Great Lakes shipping lanes and ports on three coasts, providing many options for moving soybeans to markets around the world. Quality is monitored by the Canadian Grain Commission.
