Less Beans in Canada
April 21, 2017

Based on its survey of about 11,600 farmers in the second half of March, Statistics Canada estimates a 6 percent decline in Canada's dry bean acres in 2017. Planting intentions total 260,000 acres, compared to 277,000 last year. Acres of white beans are estimated to decline 9 percent, while colored bean planting intentions are down 5 percent. Ontario growers intend to plant 9 percent more dry beans than last year, while acres in Manitoba are expected to fall 23 percent, as more acres continue to be switched to soybeans. Nationwide, Canada's soybean acreage intentions are up more than 27 percent, to almost 7-million acres. Soybean acres are estimated to increase 34.5 percent in Manitoba, to 2.2 million acres.
