2016 Ontario Wheat Quality Scoop and Technical Bulletins

GUELPH, ON (October 28, 2016) – OntarioWheat Technical Bulletins are now available. For more information, visit the Ontario Wheat Quality page.

Ontario wheat producers have the experience and a history of innovation in wheat production to meet the quality demands of the international marketplace. Our producers have been growing export quality wheat for over fifty years. Ontario hard red winter wheat's flour yield, lower ash content and medium strength protein numbers ensure a high performing wheat for flat breads, noodles, pizza dough and other specialty products.

Ontario wheat is graded by International grade standards. These standards ensure our shipments of grain will consistently meet contract specifications for quality, safety and quantity.

Situated between the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River Basin, Ontario's temperature climate and fertile soils are key components to producing top quality hard red winter wheat.

Ontario's varied geography and size results in diversified wheat production — from soft wheat in the southwest to hard wheat in the east. Other key advantages to Ontario wheat include our proximity to a strong transportation infrastructure of highways, rail lines and river access to ocean ports and our ample supply of energy sources.

Market Trends Report for May-June 2017

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

It is go time, that time of year when farmers across the great North American Corn Belt are busy planting their crops. Weather has been a detriment across much of the US Corn Belt as wet weather has farmers out of the fields in the southern, central and eastern US. With the USDA projecting a big soybean acreage this year and a reduction of corn acreage, weather will be the final determinate. For the week ending on May 14, 2017, the USDA had begged US corn planting at 71% and US soybeans planted at 32% just slightly behind normal.
