Southern Malaysia producers reported a sharp drop in production and there are ideas that all of Malaysia will come in below previous months.

Canola has found support from the recent recovery in Soybeans and Soybean Oil along with a weaker Canadian Dollar. Canola is more of a food oil than the others, although it also has bio fuels uses.
