  3. Continued demand for mandated biodiesel within the EU
  4. Late canola plantings in Canada likely to reduce yield potential
  5. Worries over development of Eastern European rapeseed crop



  1. High oil prices have a recessionary effect on the world economy
  2. Reduced demand for US soya from China as they switch to South American supplies
