Quality of Canadian oilseed-type soybeans 2022

Summary

Data on the quality of oilseed type soybeans from 2022 was collected on composite samples of Soybean, No. 1 Canada and Soybean, No. 2 Canada. The mean oil content (dry basis) for the No. 1 and No. 2 soybean composite of all samples was 22.0% (Tables 1 and 3). This is similar to the 2021 mean of 22.3% (Table 1) and slightly lower than the 5-year mean (2017 to 2021) of 21.7%. The mean protein content (dry basis) for the No. 1 and No. 2 soybean composite of all samples was 38.9% (Tables 1 and 3), which is similar to the 2021 mean of 38.6% and the 5-year (2017 to 2021) mean of 38.7% (Table 1). The mean oil and protein content for No. 1 and No. 2 soybean composites varied between the western, eastern and Maritime provinces. The western Canada (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) composite had a mean oil content of 21.3% and a mean protein content of 38.9%, whereas the eastern Canada composite (Ontario and Quebec) had a mean oil content of 22.3% and a mean protein content of 40.3% (Table 3). However, the Maritimes (New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island) composite had a mean oil content and protein content of 22.5% and 38.9%, respectively.
