August 12 - August 21, 2019
The 4th annual Great Ontario Yield Tour will take place August 12th to 21st, 2019. As in previous years, the unique yield tour is sure to be an eye-opener, providing clues to whether or not 2019 will be seen as a high yield or a low yield year. With the Yield Tour team assessing growing conditions, cropping challenges, opportunities facing Ontario Farmers in 2019, the “boots-on-the-ground” team will make agronomy and marketing recommendations on how to face this year’s crop season.
The tour takes place the last two weeks in August, when the team is out in the field taking samples. At the end of the Great Ontario Yield Tour, the team will be estimating corn and soybean yields in Ontario for 4 regions: South, East, Central, and West.
If you would like to volunteer for your farm to be part of the crop sampling, register online and we will get back to you with details and plans as quickly as we can.
The Great Ontario Yield Tour team wants you to see what we see. Check out our photos and farmer and industry expert video interviews as we post them on Twitter @Farmsmarketing using hashtag #ONyield19 throughout the tour. Our corn and soybean yield estimates will be released at the final yield tour events being held on August 22nd and August 29th, 2019.
