2017 Ontario Wheat Quality Scoop

Ontario Wheat

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

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

Situated between the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River Basin, Ontario's temperature climate and fertile soils are key components to producing top quality hard red winter wheat.

Ontario's varied geography and size results in diversified wheat production — from soft wheat in the southwest to hard wheat in the east. Other key advantages to Ontario wheat include our proximity to a strong transportation infrastructure of highways, rail lines and river access to ocean ports and our 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.
