Where is Canola Grown?

Canola is grown in 28 states in the U.S., ranging from just a few hundred acres in some states to 1.9 million acres in North Dakota.  According to the latest report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Services Agency, there were 2.3 million acres of canola planted in the United States in 2022-23. Major production regions in the U.S. include the Northern Plains, Pacific Northwest (410,000 acres, Nov. 2023 data), and Southern Great Plains. Montana, Washington, and Idaho are the top producing states after North Dakota.
