China to lift parts of Canadian canola ban

Published by Steve Coleman on March 01, 2012

China plans to partially lift a ban on Canadian canola.

The outbreak of a fungal infection in canola plants prompted China to halt Canadian shipments in the event they infected Chinese crops.

Nine crushers in China's largest canola-growing regions are expected to open to Canadian crops sometime over the next year.

China first started restricting Canadian shipments in 2009 over worries imports could contain the fungal rot blackleg.
