  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X200900210942
    Description:

    This article highlights the key agricultural events in 2008.

    Release date: 2009-11-10

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200900310927
    Description:

    Water is essential for crop production, whether it is provided by rain or irrigation. Although relatively few farms in Canada irrigate, this use of water can represent a significant portion of water use in some areas of the country. This article presents information on the use of irrigation in 2007.

    Description:

    In 2008, Statistics Canada conducted the first Agricultural Water Use Survey. This pilot survey is part of the Canadian Environment Sustainability Indicators initiative and collects information on volumes of water used for irrigation, irrigated areas, irrigation practices and the quality of water used for agricultural purposes. This technical paper describes the methodology used for the pilot survey and includes recommendations for future cycles of the survey. The validation process seems to indicate that the method used to estimate the volumes of water used and the irrigated areas calculated underestimates the results. The report gives recommendations to minimize this bias in the next iterations of the survey. First, it is recommended to simplify the level of information collected by the survey; to review the sampling methodology; and to examine other means of collecting information on volumes of water used for irrigation. This pilot version of the survey remains a reliable source for consistent data on agricultural water use.

    Description:

    Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis (RSGA) of the Agriculture Division prepared a series of maps and statistics that show the progression of the 2009 Red River valley flood in Manitoba for the spring of 2009. Starting with an image acquired on March 31, the maps were produced from the analysis of Radarsat-2 satellite image data integrated with 2006 Census of Agriculture data and census geography boundary files. From this analysis, the total area of flooded agriculture land and the number of farmers affected were calculated. A comparison is made with the 1997 flood that occurred in the same region.

    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:

    With its vibrant yellow flowers, a canola field is a beautiful sight. And its colour is a clue to its family history mustard. Canola refers to a particular group of rapeseed varieties, a species of the much larger mustard family that includes, besides mustard, turnips, cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli. While these plants have been bred for their roots (turnips), leaves (cabbage) or immature flower heads (cauliflower and broccoli), the rapeseed branch of the family was bred to maximize production of the high-oil seeds that are used to produce vegetable oil.
