Bad weather cuts Canada wheat crop estimate by 5% from August
The Agriculture Division of Statistics Canada this week projected Canadian wheat production in 2004 at 24.5 million tonnes (898.8 million bushels), down 1.2 million tonnes, or 5%, from the previous forecast of 25.6 million tonnes (941.5 million bushels) issued Aug. 24.

Foul weather across the Canadian Prairie provinces has reduced yield potential and average quality for the country's wheat crop. At the same time, if the revised projection proves accurate, wheat production in Canada would rise 4%, or 910,300 tonnes, from 23.6 million tonnes (865.4 million bushels) in 2003.

"What a difference six weeks makes," Statistics Canada said in commentary accompanying the new data. "Expectations for a good harvest in the west, as reported in the July preliminary production estimates, have been dashed by Mother Nature.

"At the time of the September survey, crop production, which was in most cases still above the 2003 estimates, had been tempered by frost, excessive moisture and prolonged cold weather. Conditions varied considerably across the west but deteriorated to some extent in almost all regions. Not all crops were affected to the same extent, but all were delayed, and quality will be an issue."

Average all-wheat yield in Canada projects to 36.7 bushels per acre, down from 37.4 bushels as the previous forecast but up from 33.5 in 2003.

Spring wheat production projects to 17.3 million tonnes (637 million bushels), down 7% from the August forecast but up 896,400 tonnes, or 5%, from 16.4 million tonnes (604.1 million bushels) a year ago. Average spring wheat yields project to 35.7 bushels per acre, down from 37.2 in the August forecast but up from 33.2 in 2003.

Durum production in 2004 projects to 4.7 million tonnes (171.6 million bushels), up 54,400 tonnes from the August forecast and up 391,300 tonnes, or 9%, from 4.3 million tonnes (157.2 million bushels) a year ago.
