Canola & Barley Up, Wheat Down In Seeding Plans

Statics Canada latest grain planting projection reports are in and it looks like it will be a busy season. Based on current projections, Canadian farmers will plant approximately 21.5 million acres of canola this spring, 2021, up nearly 750,000 acres from last year, according to the government’s annual planting intentions report released April 27.

Canadian barley plantings will also be up sharply at more than 8.6 million acres this year compared to 7.6 million in 2020, but spring wheat plantings will be nearly 1.6 million acres lower than a year ago at 16.3 million acres.

The Statistics Canada report, released annually in late April, is based on data collected in the 2021 Field Crop Survey. This year’s field crop survey, conducted March 1-29, involved about 11,500 farmers across the country who were asked to share information on their crop planting intentions for the coming production year.
