The majority of WA canola is exported – generating about $1.2 billion for the state’s economy each year, with the Germany, Japan, UAE, Belgium, France and the Netherlands WA’s largest export canola markets in 2021/22.

WA canola is renowned for its high oil content – with the state often achieving higher oil contents than the rest of the nation.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development supports the WA canola industry through agronomic research and development; and pest and disease identification and management.
