Statistics Canada says as of March 31, 2018 total stocks of wheat and barley were lower compared with the same date in 2017.
Total wheat stocks were at 16.4 million tonnes at the end of March, down 3.9 per cent from the same day a year earlier.
Meanwhile, total stocks of canola, corn, soybeans, oats, dry peas and lentils were up. Many of the increases were a result of increased on-farm stocks.
Total canola stocks were up 14.4 per cent to 9.1 million tonnes.
Soybean stocks increased 38.7 per cent to 2.6 million tonnes, likely the result of record production of 7.7 million tonnes in 2017. Manitoba was the main driver, as on-farm stocks in the province increased by 150 per cent to 700,000 tonnes.
