Winter wheat map shows strong 2022 yields

September 27, 2022

Many Ontario winter wheat farmers with Production Insurance coverage saw yields well above average this year.

Winter wheat harvest for 2022 is now complete, and most Production Insurance customers have reported their yields to Agricorp. Soft red winter wheat yields reported by Production Insurance customers averaged around 98 bushels per acre, which is roughly 115% of the provincial 10-year average farm yield (AFY) for farmers in this program.

How strong yields affect your coverage

Above-average yields can have a positive impact on Production Insurance coverage by raising a farm's AFY, which provides farmers with higher coverage when they need it most. Higher coverage means more protection from yield reductions and crop losses caused by factors beyond a farmer's control, including adverse weather, disease, pests, wildlife or other uncontrollable natural perils.
