2022 7th Annual Great ON Yield Tour
August 15 - August 26, 2022
The 2022 planting season is into unchartered territory with so many unknowns. A war in Ukraine, grains stocks being held hostage in the Black Sea Region, extreme heat, to more countries banning exports to fight inflation are just some of the headlines resulting in increased volatility. What will a second year of La Nina bring to Ontario after record crops in 2021 at a time of limited supplies and continued post-COVID supply chain disruptions that have worsened due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Ontario farmers are in a uniquely strong position with continued year-on-year strong crop prices (record high basis for this time of the year stronger U.S. $ Index vs. the CDN $) and farm profitability potential. At a time of soaring, near-record corn, soybeans and wheat prices, Ontario crop conditions have been more conducive than those in the U.S. Midwest (despite some regions being very wet), which will help them grow a good crop that can reap the benefits of those strong prices.
We held two final events at the end of the Data Collection Tour. The Eastern Ontario event was held on the 25th of August at Derks Elevator in Chesterville, ON, and the Western Ontario Event was held on the 1st of September at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, ON.
