Great Lakes Grain Inc. based in Chatham, Ontario, has announced that it has scheduled its 13th annual Great Lakes Grain Crop Assessment Tour for August 29 to September 9, 2022.
It is during this tour that Great Lakes Grain staff and partners from AGRIS Co-operative Ltd., FS PARTNERS (a division of GROWMARK, Inc.), and Coop Embrun will scout corn and soybean fields with farmers who sign up for the tour.
The team will conduct yield estimates, gauge crop progress and evaluate the overall health of Ontario corn and soybean crops.
The assessment of the fields helps the team work with crop producers to determine if there are additional opportunities to market their grain.
Interested producers can have their fields assessed by registering through the Great Lakes Grain website using this link: www.greatlakesgrain.com/2022-Crop-assessment-request-form
Great Lakes Grain stated that by having a better understanding of the overall corn and soybean crop health and yield for farmer participants, exporters, and end-users, all parties will be able to make better agronomic, economic, and handling decisions for the 2022-2023 crop.
Great Lakes Grain also said that it encourages the participation of industry end-users to accompany the tour.
“County yield results will be released at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show at Woodstock, Ontario, on September 13, 2022,” explained Don Kabbes, General Manager with Great Lake Grain. “We are truly looking forward to visiting with our producers and their families to share the results of the tour.
“We’re excited with our continued support of COFS this fall, under the FS Ontario System.”
Supporting the tour are sponsors Bayer Crop Science and DEKALB.
