Grain Farmers group offers map to show weather patterns in province

GUELPH - Most areas in Ontario are nearing the end of soybean planting while a few others on heavy soils, including Haldimand and Niagara, have barely begun and are struggling as a result of the wet weather.

The variation across the province is more pronounced this year as a result of the above average rainfall and its impact on the different soil types across Ontario (a three month accumulated precipitation map can be seen at www.gfo.ca/Production/ProductionInteractiveMap).

By comparison, the USDA has reported soybean planting as of June 12 is 87% complete and 64% emerged.

The Grain Farmers of Ontario Interactive Map provides up to date crop and growth information. It is brought up to date weekly, with the help of a network of farmers strategically placed across the province, the interactive map shows county by county information on the amount of acreage harvested at any given time.  The tool can help farmers and stakeholders stay informed of a situation throughout the harvest season and adjust plans accordingly.

Grain Farmers of Ontario Grain Farmers of Ontario is the province’s newest and largest commodity organization, representing Ontario’s 28,000 corn, soybean, and wheat farmers.

The crops they grow cover five million acres across the province, generate over $2.5-billion in farm gate receipts, result in over $9-billion in economic output, and are responsible for over 40,000 jobs in the province.
