Seeds Canada’s New President says Providing Value for Members is a Top Priority

His appointment comes at a pivotal time, with numerous opportunities and challenges on the horizon. “There’s a lot going on, and I think it would be remiss of me not to comment on Ellen Sparry and all of the things she has done in her capacity as chair, both in Seeds Canada and with one of the legacy organizations, CSTA. Ellen certainly paved the way, and so I feel that I’m in good hands now moving into the chair position,” he said during a Seed World Canada podcast interview this week during the Seeds Canada annual conference in Edmonton, Alta. Acknowledging the significant contributions of his predecessor, Collins emphasized the importance of continuity and building upon established foundations. “I have big shoes to fill,” he noted, referring to Sparry’s long tenure and extensive knowledge. “As president, you kind of have to pick up where Ellen left off. Any organization, especially a young one like Seeds Canada, faces many challenges. The key is to look at these challenges as opp

Just Minor Changes in US Soybean Balance Sheets

The USDA made just minor adjustments this month in its old- and new-crop US soybean outlooks. Updated supply-demand estimates released Friday lowered the 2023-24 soybean ending stocks estimate by 5 million bu from last month to 345 million, while new-crop stocks dropped 20 million bu to 435 million. Both numbers fell below average pre-report trade estimates of 355 million and 449 million, respectively. The drop in the old-crop ending stocks estimate was due to a 5-million bu reduction in the import forecast to 20 million bu. Soybean futures were trading mixed this afternoon, anywhere between 1 cent/bu higher and 7 cents lower. On the new-crop side, the USDA lowered its US soybean production estimate by 15 million from July to 4.435 billion, based on the June acreage report which reduced both planted and harvested area from earlier expectations. Meanwhile, this year’s average expected US soybean yield was unchanged from July at 52 bu/acre, up from 50.6 bu in 2023. The decline

Alberta Major Crop Conditions Steady

Alberta major crop conditions held steady this past week, as warmer temperatures arrived in all regions of the province.  Friday’s crop report pegged the condition of major crops (spring wheat, oats, barley, canola, and peas) at 74% good to excellent as of Tuesday, unchanged from July 2 and still comfortably above the five- and 10-year averages of 63% and 65%.  However, the report noted that warmer than ideal evening and overnight temperatures are not providing crops with a break from the hot days, which could stress those crops that have begun flowering over the last week.   “Slightly cooler temperatures and additional moisture in the weeks ahead would be beneficial as the spring crops progress through flowering and into seed development,” the report said.  The provincewide spring wheat crop was rated 78% good to excellent as of Tuesday, down a single point from a week earlier, while the condition of the oat and barley crops also slipped a single point to 74% and 77%, respectively
