What is the Grain World Crop Tour?

Crop touring is one-part science and one-part art. At the Grain World Crop Tour scouting teams will observe local crop conditions and use their findings to compare data and calculate yield estimates. The Grain World Crop Tour Scouts will be departing from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba visiting local fields to collect information. They will end their tour in Regina on August 1st, 2019 to give a presentation on at-yield results, market insights, and upcoming weather outlooks. Speakers include Neil Townsend and Jon Driedger, analysts from FarmLink Marketing Solutions, as well as Drew Lerner the founder, president and Senior Agricultural Meteorologist at World Weather Inc.

Why are we doing it?

The Crop Tour allows analytical teams to get ‘boots on the ground’ information of real crop conditions and yield estimates. This data is critical in building supply and demand tables that are used for analyzing markets and making sales decisions. The better the information they have, the better their analysis can be.

How does it work?

On July 30th, each scout car departing from Edmonton, Saskatoon, Yorkton, and Winnipeg will tour fields en route to the presentation in Regina on August 1st. Each car has a designated leader, crop scout, and reporter to assist in data collection. They will make aproximately 10 to 12 field stops per day to get a reliable sampling of information.
