The wheat crop in Ontario has been through a lot. There was some frost damage early this year as well as some dry periods through April, May and part of June accompanied by some extreme heat at times. All that aside, as numbers start to come in from areas like Essex County they’re fairly decent on even the poorest fields. While it won’t be a record crop, it will yield fairly well with a portion of that yield coming from the fact that the quality is outstanding.
In this episode of the Wheat School, OMAFRA’s Peter Johnson gives us a look at how harvest is progressing, what that wheat looks like and what options farmers are looking at post-harvest.
