Statistics Canada released a model-based crop production estimate for this year’s crop placing spring wheat production at 22.9 million metric tons. That’s a slight increase from one year ago. It’s also higher than the August survey-based estimate. All wheat production is estimated at 31 million, an increase of seven percent from last month and three percent more than one year ago. Canola production is reported at 21 million tonnes, down slightly from a year ago, but almost 2 million tonnes more than the August estimate.
