Cereal crops are an integral part of the cropping system in Ontario, grown on approximately 25% of the arable acreage (~1.5 million acres). Cereals offer many benefits to growers, from excellent profit potential to greatly improved soil structure and manure management options. Cereals respond very well to management - with attention to detail, many growers find cereals to be one of their most profitable crops.
