Updated Saskatchewan Yield Estimates Mixed

Oats, canola, and lentils were among those crops seeing upward yield revisions in the latest weekly Saskatchewan crop report, while barley and mustard saw declines. 

Updated yield estimates from the province on Thursday pegged this year’s average Saskatchewan canola yield at 35 bu/acre, up 1 bu from the early September estimate although still below the current Statistics Canada projection of 37.8 bu. The average oat yield was bumped up 9 bu from September to 89 bu, still well off the StatsCan estimate of 96 bu, while the average lentil yield was increased to 1,204 lbs/acre from 1,174 lbs, but below the StatsCan estimate of 1,362 lbs. 

On the other hand, the average Saskatchewan barley yield was trimmed 2 bu from early September to 62 bu/acre (versus 64.1 bu for StatsCan), while mustard was dropped to just 821 lbs/acre from 1,102 lbs but closer to StatsCan’s 713 lbs.
