Rapeseed glory fades a little ------------------------------------_ lolurclny, April 15, 1972 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERAID Alberta seeks better share of Canadian sugar market THE IIKRALD lJun-1111 EDMONTON' AllxMla 15 pressing Ottawa to local sugar producers a larger stiare of the Canadian market. Agri- culture Minister Htigli Ilorner said Friday in tlio legislature. UOUK Miller fSC Taner- charged in the ques- tion period ttiat 5 per cent o( Inc sugar consumed in Canada is imported. Outside the house, Mr. Miller said the Canadian government has never on the world sugar markel, preferring in- stead to have surplus sugar from other countries 'dumped' here at low prices. Canadians pay such n low price for sugar from foreign countries (hat the government prefers to subsidize sugar pro- ducers ralhcr than help them find markets, However, in 1971 for the first time In memory, local sugar sold so well thai Ihe federal government paid no subsidy, he soid. EDMONTON (CP) H may be near midnight lor Canada's Cinderella crop 03 Prnirie pro- ducers apparently Intend to plant 37 per cent less rapesced this year than they did in 1871. Last year, Prairie farmers planted a record 5.4 million nci-es, resulting in a bumper 100-million-bushe! crop. Al- though prices were depressed early Iliis year ivilli a )0-million bushel carryover, the market rebounded early in March. Statistics Canada estimates Prairie acreage will be reduced to 3.4 million acres from 5.4 million last year but siil! well above the 2.1 million acres grown during the 1906-70 period. Tlie figures could change drastically by the time farmers are able to start planting. Rapesced production has grown fantastically in Canada during Hie last four years. First grown during the Second World War, on about acres, it was used by the navy as a mar- ine oil because it could cling to Etcam or water-washed melal. This market disappeared after the war and the crushed oil was used in cooking or as a salad oil. USED IN' MAKGAltlNE In the 1960s scientists evolved a process in which the oil could be used In margarine, hut within the last two years con- cern was expressed in Europe that the oil's acid caused heart damage In animal tests. Now, varieties low in erucic acid, or free of it, are available and the switch to these varieties Is expected to be completed by 1974. J. S. Carnu'ehael, an econo- mist of Ihe federal agriculture department, says although world demand for edible oil- Feeds will continue to increase, Ihere Is a possibility world sup- plies could increase faster, and lower prices would result. "There seems little reason Why an improved product such as rapeseed should not sell in greater volume providing Canadjan rapesecd Is compe lively priced." Mr. Carmicbacl said It has been a year of decision concern- ing the use of low-crucic-acid seed in future years. "It appears that low-cruclc- acld seed will be the only seed accepted by the Canadian food .nduslry In (lie near future and hat importing countries nlso ire prepared to Most gains erased H. H.
