Canada's 2022/23 Oat Crop Plummets by 53.4% from Previous Year

Canada, a major oats producer and the largest oats exporting country, experienced a significant decline in the 2022/23 season's oat crop, amounting to 2.4 million metric tons (mmt), which is 53.4% lower than the 5.2 mmt harvested in the previous season. The decrease began at the seeding stage, with the planted area reduced by 570 thousand hectares (ha) compared to the previous season, resulting in a harvested area of only 830 thousand ha. Additionally, the lower yield of 2.94 metric tons (mt) per ha, compared to 3.73 mt/ha in the previous year, contributed to the overall reduction in oat production.Furthermore, Canadian oat exports for the 2023/24 season are estimated at 2.45 mmt, only slightly lower than the 2.67 mmt of sales in 2022/23, reducing the carry-out to a perilously low 350 thousand mt.
