From OMAFRA Exeter Agribusiness Breakfast Minutes:
Corn: Corn planting ranges from as little as 10% in the north to 95% complete, depending on the region. The Exeter area is essentially finished. Excellent ground conditions all spring except that some fields got too dry. Rain yesterday was perfect for those fields. Larger growers have finished planting corn and have switched to soybeans. It’s estimated that 50-60% of the crop has been planted in the province. (35% forEastern Canada) A few producers are still deciding on what to plant for the last few fields. Strong soybean prices will shift any swing acres to soybeans (less than 5% switch overall). The market is using price to buy soybean acres. Corn seed in every heat unit range is still available, but hopefully no replants will be necessary. No freeze injury on early planted corn has been reported to date.
