Crop Condition Assessment Program, July 10 to October 15, 2017

Released: 2017-10-24

The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) database is now available in CANSIM for the period from July 10 to October 15, 2017.

The database holds the mean value of the one-kilometre resolution satellite picture elements within each of the census agriculture regions, census divisions, and census consolidated subdivisions of Canada with pasture and/or cropping activity. The Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP) database is updated weekly from mid-April to mid-October. Since 2000, NDVI data have been disseminated through the CCAP application, which is available on Statistics Canada's website.

  Note to readers

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, through the Growing Forward 2 program, has partnered with Statistics Canada to provide the Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP) application free of charge. The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing, part of Natural Resources Canada, has also contributed by providing software for processing the input satellite data.


The publication Crop Condition Assessment Program, 2017 (Catalogue number22-205-X), is now available online.

Weekly satellite images from the start of the 2017 growing season have been processed and are now available on the Crop Condition Assessment Program website.
