Informa Economics IEG
Canada Crop Reporting Service
About the Service:
Informa Economics IEG is a leader in
survey based agricultural research in the United States. Informa Economics IEG's staff in the United States,
Canada and Brazil, along with our affiliate organizations in India, China,
Australia, Russia, Ukraine and Argentina, conduct crop production surveys. During
important points of the production season, we will survey agri-business people
across the country concerning local crops.
Respondents will include individual farmers, farm managers, elevator
managers, government personnel and others.
The chief crops to be included in
the Canadian Crop Survey are:
Winter Wheat **
Spring Wheat *
* Spring Wheat includes all Western and
Eastern Canadian spring wheat classes, other than durum.
** Winter Wheat includes all Western and
Eastern winter wheat classes.

How the survey works:
During the production season:
You will receive an email with a
link to the crop survey (http://www.cropsresearch.com/Canada/) no more than once a month.
The surveys will be conducted at the
same time as Statistics Canada, with results issued about one week ahead of
their release. We will survey in the interim months with a seeding
update in May and production forecast in July.
Filling out one of the surveys is quick and easy:
You would need to enter your assigned respondent ID, your postal code, and then
fill-out the survey, answering the questions about which you are knowledgeable for your area and ignoring the remaining questions for other areas. Then click the submit survey button, and you are done!
By participating in this survey you will receive an easy to read summary of the results
for Canada, helping you stay informed.
This information will help you to make informed decisions sooner. The summary
will be sent to your email address.
Informa Economics will never share your contact
information with third-parties. Further, Informa Economics will not use your
contact information for other purposes (the only exception: if we have a business relationship with you prior to you signing
up to participate in this survey).
