Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

So far this year it appears that the Ontario wheat yield is destined to break the record for the Ontario average as the yields have been better than expected following the late planting dates. Our Farm located just south of London, produced 101bu/acre SRW wheat using Hyland Emmit. Neighbors in the area have ranged from 80 to 110+ bu/acre. Emmit has lead yields the past three years, but I've heard reports that R47 is outyielding emmit this year? Has anyone had sprouting issues following the recent percipitation. How have your yields been?

The first field we took off yielded 70 bushels but after that it was anywhere from 40 to 55 It was SRW wheat Huntley . Very dissappointing ! That was near Otterville in Oxford County
We are nearing the end here in Troy (between Brantford and Hamilton). Yields have been highly variable from some up in the 100 bu range to those in the 60's. The best yields seem to come from nearer the lake where they was some lake effect and came off a week or so ahead of that further from the lake. The early test weight was very good 385-390 g/.5l but have fallen with every rain event. We are now seeing many in the 350-360 range. R 47 is yielding as well as any but seems to have taken the biggest hit on test weight compared to the Emmitt. Protein on the hard reds was mostly lower than average, less than half made the 11% protein and even the very best was only slightly over 11%. Fusarium was nearly non existant early but a few loads, especially after corn sileage had troublesome levels. I'd guess 2/3 or better of the wheat was sprayed with fungicide this year. More should be next year with the availability of Carumba and Prosaro adding more options. Most of our wheat went in after the middle of October as the beans were late coming off, I would suggest this was a major drag on yields as the winter was mild and the spring/early summer good for wheat growth. An enormous amount of activity in forward sales of 2011 and 2012 wheat and a high percentage of the 2010 crop has been sold rather than stored. Nearby basis is very weak with the level of selling but lots of carry in the market for those who have the ability to store. I expect that weather permitting we will see a record acreage of wheat in Ontario this fall, should keep Mr Johnson busy as quite a few who don't normally grow wheat around here are planning some for next year.
Anybody have issues with wheat sprouting? My wheat averaged 98 bu/ac with no fusariam or other issues.Overall an excellent crop.

I haven't heard of any soft red sprouting, but I have heard reports of soft white sprouting. Excellent yields, even with low test weight.

Found a Youtube video from Ontario on the Harvest.

We are a small farm in Southern Ontario, Canada. The wheat is yeilding around 100+ bushels per acre and around 15 % moisture. We are using the ez guide 500 system with vrs RTK one inch accuracy. The combine we use is a 2366 with a 25 foot 1020 case flex head. Grain cart 750 unverferth with a mx210 running it. We are just finishing up our wheat before we start custom work. Hit with alot of rain so far drawing out our wheat harvest


My yield 72 bu/ac (just below avg). Hail damage very evident. Neighbours around 70 bu to 85 bu. Have not heard of the 100+ locally that we have had in previous years. No fusarium dockage or sprouts but a bit of Grade 3. Easy harvest with decent straw. 
I found this good video on Youtube reporting their harvest results...

Libbrecht Farms 2010 Wheat Harvest. Case 2366 Axial-Flow Combine. In Southwestern Ontario Canada. Wheat was yielding 100+ Bushels Per Acre.



Another great harvest video.

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
