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
PROs for 2016-17 are based on the best information available today, with the understanding that the 2016 production season remains ahead and will ultimately determine price direction and levels. In terms of production, early forecasts predict a movement away from cereal crops towards pulse and soybean acres, with the exception of durum given its current premium over spring wheat. Excess global wheat supplies will continue to pressure Canadian prices in 2016-17 unless there is a major development in the marketplace. The weaker Canadian dollar has had an offsetting effect on weaker prices.

General pool assumptions:

  • Canadian dollar at 69 cents versus the U.S. dollar.
  • Current forward futures structure for wheat, canola and soybeans.
