Canadian Barley Harvest
Brought to you by the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre (CMBTC), this page provides up-to-date information on the Western Canadian barley harvest and crop quality for 2022/21. Please check back frequently for updates.
Crop Progress Updates
022 crop seeding was delayed in some regions of the Prairies due to precipitation in the Spring, including snowstorms in late April and early May, coupled with prolonged cool temperatures, which delayed producers from getting into their fields. As a result, crops were seeded 1-3 weeks late in many areas in western Canada with seeding continuing well into June this year.
