Note: PROs are provided as price indications based on current nearby and forward markets. They are calculated basis track west coast or Thunder Bay ports, net of all projected operating costs, including G3’s pool management fee. Volatile market conditions may affect the PROs significantly. PROs are not price guarantees and should not be confused with initial payments. Farmers should consider entering pool contracts as an excellent risk-management tool that provides a solid return from the entire pooling period.

To calculate pool returns backed off to the farm, farmers should factor in country deductions that they negotiate directly with grain handlers. These deductions may vary at different times of the year.


PRO commentary
2016-17 pools

Demand for wheat and durum remains on the slow side while canola demand has held steady at a strong pace, both for domestic crush and export. Since the last PRO, wheat futures rose, then fell back to slightly lower than a month ago. Canola futures are also below month-ago levels after trading both lower and higher. The Canadian dollar has traded sideways for the month.

Given current PRO projections, producers in the 2016-17 wheat Futures Choice Winter Pool would anticipate a final return for 1 CWRS 13.5 in-store port position made up of the July 2017 futures value they lock in plus $14 per tonne. 

General pool assumptions:

  • Canadian dollar at 76.2 cents versus the U.S. dollar.
  • Current forward futures structure for wheat and canola futures markets.
