Looking Like Average: Western Canadian prairie yields are run-of-the-mill
It’s an average year for yields in the western Canadian prairies.
On a tour across western Canada, Leftfield Commodity Research found that cereal yields - with the exception of Durum - are average. The group also found pulse and canola numbers are about average too.
However, in the eastern portion of the country, prairies are experiencing late growth after wet weather caused crops to go into the ground late. That’s increasing the risk of frost hurting yields there.
