A new report says Saskatchewan farmers are weathering increased market volatility.
Farm Credit Canada chief agricultural economist J.P. Gervais says trade uncertainty and rising commodity supplies are causing market fluctuations.
But he says there are advantages.
He says there is a shift in offshore purchases, and Canada can take advantage of expanding sales.
He pointed to China’s trade dispute with the U.S. and seeking alternate sources of products like soybeans.
He says sales of Canadian soybeans and canola to China have improved because of the U.S.-China trade dispute.
Gervais says the world’s appetite for Canadian farm commodities and food continues to grow.
Canada ranks as the world’s fifth largest exporter of agriculture commodities.
