European rapeseed yields seen falling due to drought and frost : Biofuels Digest

With China expected to boost rapeseed imports to compensate for a lack of US soybean as a result of the ongoing trade war with the US, European rapeseed prices could jump significantly, weighing on the viability of the crop as a feedstock for biofuel.
