WINNIPEG, Manitoba--The ICE Futures canola market was stronger at midday Friday, seeing some follow-through buying interest after Thursday's recovery from nearby lows.
Crop prospects continue to deteriorate across the Prairies, with hot temperatures and little moisture in the forecasts over the next week.
Gains in Chicago Board of Trade soyoil and a softer tone in the Canadian dollar were also supportive for canola, although soybeans were weaker at midday.
