Canada: Grain and Feed Update

Early outlook for 2015/2016 is for area seeded to wheat, barley, corn and oats to increase to more average levels as areas that were left unseeded the previous year due to inclement weather are reclaimed. In 2014/2015, quality issues and lower domestic supplies are limiting exports of barley and corn and will likely result in higher than average corn imports. While a greater than average percentage of Canadian wheat is being graded lower, often the reasons for the lowers grades have little to do with the functionality of the wheat and can be addressed through the milling process. As a result wheat exports continue to be strong. Several policy tools and bills have been brought forward to help empower the grains industry.
