A high proportion of the 2022 Canadian wheat crop has been graded in the top two grades, making for am excellently rated crop, a Nov. 23 news release from Cereals Canada said. There was high protein content across all Canadian wheat classes recorded.

“The New Wheat Crop Report provides our customers with the technical data on what they can expect from this year’s crop,” Dean Dias, Cereals Canada CEO, said in the release. “The 2022 report was released today and we are pleased to share that Canada has excellent quality in all wheat classes.”

  • Over 90 per cent of the CWRS crop was graded No. 1 and No. 2, with protein content higher than average.
  • Eighty per cent of CWAD was graded No. 1 and No. 2, with protein content higher than average.
  • Over 90 per cent of CPSR was graded No. 1 and No. 2, with good protein content.
  • Ninety-nine per cent of CESRW was graded No. 2 or above with consistent high falling numbers and excellent quality.

The release noted that following drought conditions that reduced Canadian wheat production in 2021, 2022 production returned to above average volumes. Canada grew 34.7 million tonnes of wheat this year, up 55 per cent from last year.

The New Crop Report is prepared and presented in partnership with the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC), value chain members, and provincial grower commissions, the release said. This fall, Cereals Canada received harvest assessment samples from nine grain exporters. The CGC reviewed samples provided by growers in Western Canada, while the Ontario wheat was reviewed by the Grain Farmers of Ontario.
