Corn is grown with widespread adoption across Southern Ontario. Over the years 1998-2007, grain corn acreage averaged 720,000 ha (1.78 million acres) with an average yield of 7.97 t/ha (127 bu/acre). An additional 121,000 ha (0.3 million acres) is grown as corn silage for livestock feed. Grain corn produced within the province is used for both feed (60%) and industrial (40%) uses.
