Models See Higher Yields Than Survey

OTTAWA - Sep 19/18 - SNS -- Statistics's Canada's model-based estimates for Canadian pulse production did not push yields in the direction some processors and exporters wanted to see.

Forecast yields for peas, lentils, chickpeas and dry edible beans were higher than indicated by farmers before the harvest got underway. Interestingly, the model-based production estimates for peas and lentils are closer to those suggested by provincial yield estimates than the August crop report.

Statistics Canada said the latest estimates are based on a model that incorporates coarse resolution satellite data from Statistics Canada's Crop Condition Assessment Program, data from Statistics Canada's field crop reporting series, and agroclimatic data. By contrast, the August and final crop reports are based on a direct survey of farmers.
