13th Annual Great Lakes Grain Crop Assessment Tour Scheduled for August 29 to September 9
Chatham, Ontario (AgPR) June 10, 2022 – Great Lakes Grain is excited to announce the 13th annual Great Lakes Grain Crop Assessment Tour scheduled for August 29 to September 9, 2022. Throughout the tour, Great Lakes Grain staff and partners from AGRIS Co-operative, FS PARTNERS 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. By assessing these crops, the team can work with producers to understand if they have further opportunities to market their grain. Interested producers can have their fields assessed by registering through the Great Lakes Grain website using the link below: https://www.greatlakesgrain.com/2022-Crop-assessment-request-form The benefit of the crop tour is to have a better understanding of overall corn and soybean crop health and yield for farmer participants, exporters and end-users. This assists all parties to make agronomic, economic and handling decisions for the 2022-2023 crop. Great Lakes Grain also 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, ON, on September 13, 2022. We are truly looking forward to visiting with our producers and their families to share the results of the tour,” says Don Kabbes, general manager of Great Lakes Grains. “We’re excited with our continued support of COFS this fall, under the FS Ontario System.” Once again, Great Lakes Grain would like to thank Bayer Crop Science and DEKALB for their continued tour sponsorship.
