2018 IP Variety Reports


Spotty rains across southwestern Ontario

The 2018 growing season has been one of spotty showers. August has continued that trend with some locations in Lambton and Middlesex counties getting hit with heavy rainfall over a short period of time and starting to show some crop damage. While other locations in Chatham-Kent and Essex are patiently waiting for a few more rain showers to help ripen the early tomato crop in time for harvest in just a few short weeks.

Conditions Excellent

Conditions excellent for above average crops 
CHATHAM, ONTARIO, August 10, 2018 – Conditions appear to be excellent for the makings of a new provincial yield record for corn. Sunshine, recent moisture and crop heat units (CHU) are combining at the right time to optimize grain fill. With soybeans things remain very hopeful for an above average crop with some growers having the opportunity to produce their career best yields.
