Despite a challenging growing season that led to variable yields and below-average production, Canada produced another top-quality wheat crop, the 2023 New Wheat Crop Report from Cereals Canada said.

“This year, Canadian farmers grew almost 30 million tonnes of high-quality wheat with the functionality and protein strength that customers expect,” Dean Dias, Cereals Canada CEO, said in a news release about the report.

Canada had excellent quality in all wheat classes for the 2023 crop year, with the majority grading No. 2 or better and average to higher-than-average protein content.

  • Over 95 per cent of the CWRS crop is graded No. 1 and No. 2, with average protein content
  • Over 80 per cent of CWAD is graded No. 1 and No. 2, with protein content higher than average
  • Over 90 per cent of CPSR is graded No. 1 and No. 2, with average protein content
  • Over 90 per cent of CESRW is graded No. 1 and No. 2, with average protein content.

The release noted technical data will be presented at two customer webinars on Nov. 21 and 22, and at four international trade and technical missions over the coming weeks. Led by Cereals Canada, the value chain delegation is scheduled to visit 16 countries in Asia, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. This year’s outreach will include a stop in the Philippines, as well as a return to China for the first time since 2019.

“China is a long-term, consistent buyer of Canadian wheat, and they value quality,” noted Dias. “Our targeted customer outreach enables Cereals Canada and the value chain members to connect with customers and provide updates on this year’s quality, while building relationships and engaging in market access discussions.”
