Maps: Agricorp Reports Big Ontario 2021 Corn, Soybean Yields

Provincial crop insurer Agricorp is reporting huge 2021 yields for Ontario corn and soybean growers.

The average 2021 corn yield for production insurance participants came in at about 200 bu/acre, far above the 10-year average of 173 bu. As can be seen in the map below, the biggest yields were reported in the main production region in the deep southwest part of the province, although a large area in the far eastern part of the province did extremely well too.

For soybeans, the average yield for production insurance participants was pegged at about 53 bu/acre, compared to the 10-year average of 47 bu. Similar to corn, the best soybean yields were generally in the southwest, along with a large pocket in the east (see map below).

In fact, based on corn and soybean yields reported to Agricorp by production insurance participants by Jan. 10, 2022, almost every county in the province saw 2021 yields well above their 10-year average.

Agricorp’s yield estimates – which only represent a portion of the total corn and soybean acres in the province – are well above those reported by Statistics Canada in its Dec. 3 crop production report. That report put the average 2021 Ontario corn yield at 175.2 bu/acre, and the soybean yield at 51.6 bu/acre.
