Archer Daniels Midland Company is offering 2012 new crop contracts for high oleic Nexera canola. The contracts offer premiums over commodity canola with Act of God protection.
Farmers purchase the Nexera canola seed from a specified local seed retailer. One-hundred percent of production is covered, with multiple pricing options, including a base contract with coverage dependent upon the region.
"We rely on farmers to help us meet the growing consumer demand for healthier oil options such as high oleic canola," says Ken Campbell, general manager of ADM Softseed Processing. "Our partnership with Dow AgroSciences for Nexera canola allows us to offer farmers attractive contract options."
Nexera canola is used to produce Omega-9 oil, which has a unique combination of high-oleic (omega-9) and low-linoleic fatty acids. This profile creates a healthier oil option that delivers a light, clean taste and superior performance.
The ADM Nexera canola premium contract is available at four locations. Farmers in the U.S. should contact ADM Enderlin at 800-553-6032 or ADM Velva at 800-548-8613 for more information about 2012 Nexera™ canola contract details and current premiums.
