Bruce Burnett, CWB Gives His 2011 Wheat and Durum Outlook


Much of the attention is being paid to corn, soybean and lentil pricing this winter. The forgotten sister has been wheat. In many cases wheat is not as sexy or doesn’t get people as crazy with market anticipation. The fact is that wheat is still an incredibly important component of Western Canadian rotations. Not just for agronomic purposes, wheat will make farmers money in 2011.

One of the things that wheat has going for it on the prairies is that if the wheat price is competitive enough farmers tend to grow more of it because of its increased growing simplicity in comparison to some of the other crop choices.

At CropWeek 2011 I participated in the scrum with Bruce Burnett, Canadian Wheat Board to look at the Board’s wheat outlook and pricing forecast for 2011.
