209 Great Ontario Yield Tour Logo

Ontario Crop Highlights

Now in its fourth year, the one-of-its-kind Great Ontario Yield Tour has been consistently successful in projecting the yearly Ontario corn and soybeans yield within +/-3 bushels/acre of Agricorp’s final Ontario yield estimates. The Tour, which takes place well before harvest, is unable to consider late-fall weather-induced final harvested acreage and resulting yield differences.

Agricorp Harvested Corn Yields 2018 Ontario

According to Agricorp data, in 2018, corn yields across Ontario (for reported acres as of March 18) came in at an average of 183 bushels per acre. This is above the Production Insurance 10-year average of 170 bushels per acre. Soybean yields across Ontario came in at an average of 53 bushels per acre. This was above the Production Insurance 10-year average of 45 bushels per acre. A dry June and July in most areas, followed by rain in August, contributed to these record high yields.
