Crop futures rose Friday amid dry weather in large parts of Canada and the U.S. growing regions and hot conditions in the Prairies.
November canola closed up $6.50 at $510.30.
Compared to the previous Friday, November canola was up $5.50 per tonne, not bad considering that the loonie rose about three-quarters of a cent over the week.
Temperatures are expected in the high 20s to mid 30s over large parts of the Prairies over the next five days with little moisture other than from thunderstorms. The best chance of storm activity over the next few days is in central Alberta and in parts of Manitoba.
