    Description:

    What could be better than a home-made cherry pie coming fresh out of the oven, with the wonderful smell of rich cherries and bright red juice. Historically there have been two main types of cherries; sweet cherries which we eat fresh from the tree and farmers markets in the summer, and sour cherries, which we find in a variety of processed forms. Sour cherries are aptly named for their sour flavour compared to the regular sweet cherries. Canadian plant breeders have been working to produce a third type of cherry, one that combines the best traits of both sweet and sour cherries.

    Description:

    Traditionally rates of return in the agriculture sector have been calculated on the market value of the assets as opposed to the historical cost. In other sectors rates of return are calculated on the basis of the historical cost of the assets which has meant that rates of returns in agriculture are not comparable to those in other sectors.

    This paper calculates rates of return for incorporated farms, based on the historical cost of the assets and compares these rates of returns to those in other sectors. It also measures the impact of capital gains on the rates of return for the agriculture sector. In the final section of the paper we measure the level of risk with the rates of return both in the agricultural sector and in other sectors.

    Description:

    Canadian farmers are successfully meeting the demand for fresh fruit and vegetables during the local growing season. Due to the short duration of the growing season however, imports are required to fill the shelves for a significant part of the year. Although overall prices for fresh produce are trending downwards, these imports cost more in the grocery stores and fresh markets than domestic produce.
