Farms.com Risk Management had concluded its 2017 Ontario Plantings Survey in March and this is how it compares to Stats Canada’s 2017 March updated Acreage figures. For corn and wheat acreage, the two sets of data are quite close to each other. Stats Canada is estimating close to 400,000 more acres to be planted in 2017 in Ontario- 6,190,000 in 2017 vs. last year at 5,800,000, and compared to our survey at 5,936,287.
