2019 Great Ontario Yield Tour Results

The 4th annual 2019 Great Ontario Yield Tour was held from August 12th to 21st, 2019. The tour projected 2019 final corn yield to be 173.2 bpa +/-1-2% and the soybean yield was projected to be 43.6 bpa +/- 1-2% (to take into account how the crops would finish). Both are down from the record highs the previous year. Tour experts Moe Agostino and Greg Stewart were concerned about maturity and a lower test weight corn and that is exactly what happened. The further east you go in the province the worse the grading issue is with 3’s and 4’s.

2019 Great Ontario Yield Tour Region Data

At 2.2 million corn acres, there will be plenty of bushels in the province to meet demand, but Stats Canada is overestimating the crop as there were many acres that did not get planted in southwestern Ontario. Acres are closer to 2 million. The province will be a net importer of corn in 2020 until the new crop is available in the fall of 2020.

2019 Great Ontario Yield Tour Projections

The highest county corn yield was measured for Elgin county at 188 bu/acre and the highest soybean county yield was measured for Chatham-Kent at 51 bu/ac.
