Commodities, Derivatives and Structured Products

Commodities - Part 13

Overview

Oilseeds are agricultural products grown for the production of vegetable oils and increasingly for the production of biodiesel and renewable diesels. Consequently, there are now major global markets for oilseeds in their unprocessed form and for their two byproducts, vegetable oil and meal. While there are many different oilseeds, international trade is dominated by five in particular: soybeans, palm, rapeseed, sunflower seeds, and coconut. In this eCourse, we examine each of these and then look at how oilseeds may be traded.

- List the key types of oilseed
- Identify the main uses, producers, and growth characteristics of the key oilseeds
