Canada: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CA2023-0017

FAS/Ottawa forecasts total production of wheat, corn, barley, and oats to increase one percent in MY 2023/24 from the previous year, assuming yields return closer to historic averages and a six percent increase in wheat production offsets production declines in other crops. FAS/Ottawa assumes planted area to increase more than three percent on an additional 700,000 hectares of wheat. Only oat planted area is forecast to decline. Mid-April prairie cropland conditions are significantly better than in the past two years due to improved soil moisture in the western portion of the prairies. However, some regions are now reporting too much moisture.
