2017 Ontario Wheat Quality Scoop

Ontario Wheat

Ontario wheat producers have a history of innovation and the experience in wheat production to meet the quality demands of both domestic and international markets. Our producers have been growing high quality wheat for over fifty years.

Ontario wheat is graded by international grade standards that ensure our shipments of grain consistently meet contract specifications for quality, safety, and quantity.

Ontario is situated between the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River Basin, and our temperate climate and fertile soils are key components to producing top quality hard red winter wheat.

Because of Ontario's size and varied geography, its producers grow several varieties of wheat: from soft wheat in the southwest to hard wheat in the east. Ontario’s wheat production is supported by our proximity to strong transportation infrastructure (highways, rail lines, and river access to ocean ports) and an ample supply of energy sources.

Summary Data

This year, Grain Farmers of Ontario has partnered with SGS Canada, Inc. on the development of the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory (GATL). The GATL will be conducting this year's wheat harvest survey program. This program analyzes samples from across the province that helps create a picture of the quality of each year’s harvest.

This page will be updated regularly as new results become available.

NOTE: All grading and analysis are conducted by the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory.
