Statistics Canada’s July, 2014 report of principal field crops echos what many farmers and analysts have already concluded — 2014 most certainly won’t be a repeat of 2013.

Of note, farmers are set to harvest the most acres of soybeans ever planted in the country — a million more than 2013. Manitoba farmers may harvest about 1.2 million acres, though at reduced yields, the report says, pegging total production as about the same as 2013. Ontario is also big on beans, as farmers there planted roughly 3 million acres of the crop.

Canola yields are estimated to take a big hit in 2014 over 2013. The StatsCan report puts production at 13.9 million tonnes, a 22.6% reduction over 2013.

About 11.4 million tonnes of grain corn should come out of the ground this year, StatsCan estimates, a production drop of nearly 20%.

Wheat acres took a 2.6 million hit, it’s estimated, and production is pegged at 27.7 million tonnes for the year.
