Could 2012 UK Rapeseed Crop Hit 3 MMT?

06/01/12 -- A recent report from the HGCA, citing data from farming consultancy firm The Anderson’s Centre, suggested that UK rapeseed plantings will jump to a record 758,000 hectares for the 2012 harvest - a 7.5% increase on this season.

Unlike UK wheat and barley yields, which have plateaued over the last 10-15 years, rapeseed yields are still on the up. If they can continue that trend in 2012 then could we be in for our first ever 3 MMT crop this year?
