Over 809,000 ha (2 million acres) of soybeans are grown annually in Ontario. The development of earlier maturity varieties, a wider selection of herbicides, adaptability to no-till production and the relative low cost of production have contributed to the widespread adoption of soybeans in the province.
Glyphosphate-tolerant varieties make up about two-thirds of the crop, while about one-third is non-GMO (genetically modified organisms). The demand for specialty soybeans with identity preservation (e.g., food grade, non-GMO, organic, etc.) has created marketing opportunities for Ontario beyond the traditional end use of soybeans for oil production and livestock feed.
