Barley and Oats Officially Move Under the Grain Farmers of Ontario Banner

Last week marked that official start to barley and oat farmers being represented by the Grain Farmers of Ontario, as the crops joined corn, soybean and wheat within the organization as of July 1, 2015.

Oats“We are proud to see our organization grow with the inclusion of these two important grain crops,” says Mark Brock, chair of GFO. “We look forward to supporting the province’s barley and oat farmers, just as we do our current membership, through research, market development, advocacy, and public and member relations.”

Farmers delivering barley and oats to a grain elevator this summer will be charged a check-off fee to Grain Farmers of Ontario. The fees are:

  • Barley $1.30/mT
  • Oats $1.65/mT
  • Mix of Barley and Oats $1.65/mT

GFO reminds its farmer-members that barley and oats are not covered by the Grain Financial Protection Plan. Those with questions about oat and barley inclusion in GFO are asked to call member relations at 226-979-5581 or by emailing [email protected]

Ontario harvests about 250,000 acres of barley and oats annually.
