Canola in Uruguay - a surprise

During the pre-IFAJ trip to Uruguay, when our tour guide found out that we were interested in agriculture, she shared as much as she could tell us about that country's agriculture. We saw wind turbines and large equipment...and even some fields of this lovely yellow, discovered in Canada, crop - Canola.  I can tell you that it looked a bit out of place thousands of miles from home on the prairies, and it also inspired a source of pride in being Canadian. Over the years, Canadians have invented, discovered or enhance so many things to do with agriculture. These have been shared across the globe. I only wish that more Canadians knew about it or cared.
