Most Alberta Yield Estimates Up; Canola Lower

Alberta has revised most of its yield estimates for major crops modestly higher from earlier in the month, with one notable exception: canola. 

Friday’s Alberta crop report pegged the province’s average 2022 canola yield at 38.8 bu/acre, down from the Sept. 9 provincial estimate of 41 bu, and below the revised Statistics Canada forecast earlier this month of 41.7 bu, which was downgraded from August. 

On the other hand, the average expected Alberta spring wheat yield was bumped up to 54.3 bu/acre from 52.8 bu in today’s report (versus the September StatsCan estimate of 58.7 bu/acre), while oats increased to 92.3 bu/acre from 90 bu and barley climbed to 74.7 bu from 73.2 bu. StatsCan’s oat and barley yield estimates in September came in at 78.9 bu and 71.5 bu/acre, respectively. 

The average Alberta pea yield estimate was little changed, inching up to 44.9 bu/acre from 44.7 bu, well above the latest StatsCan estimate of 41.4 bu.
