Ontario is situated between the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River Basin, and our temperate climate and fertile soils are key components to producing top quality hard red winter wheat.

Because of Ontario’s size and varied geography, its producers grow several varieties of wheat: from soft wheat in the southwest to hard wheat in the east. Ontario’s wheat production is supported by our proximity to strong transportation infrastructure (highways, rail lines, and river access to ocean ports) and an ample supply of energy sources.

2019 Summary Data

This year, Grain Farmers of Ontario has partnered with SGS Canada, Inc. on the development of the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory (GATL). The GATL will be conducting this year’s wheat harvest survey program. This program analyzes samples from across the province that helps create a picture of the quality of each year’s harvest.

This page will be updated regularly as new results become available.

NOTE: All grading and analysis are conducted by the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory.
