    Description:

    As crops grow, they deplete the soil’s fertility by absorbing nutrients from the land. These nutrients, need to be replenished in order to ensure that there is something in the soil for the next year’s crops. Canadian agriculture relies heavily on commercial fertilizers as well as manure to replenish soil’s nutrients. This article examines how farmers provide their crops with the nutrients they need to grow and how these farming practices have changed over time.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20050037842
    Description:

    For the purposes of this study, eight environmental management systems (EMSs) were considered: whole farm environmental plan; manure management plan; fertilizer management plan; pesticide management plan; water management plan; wildlife conservation plan; grazing management plan, and nutrient management plan.

    The information on the use of farm environmental plans was obtained from the Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) conducted in 2001 by Statistics Canada and sponsored in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 11-010-X20040026798
    Description:

    Most Canadians would probably be surprised to learn that floriculture receipts are closing in on wheat, finishing in 2002 only 20% below the $2.3 billion earned from wheat. This note documents the shift in farming towards floriculture and nursery products in recent years, including which provinces have driven their growth and why farmers find these crops more appealing.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20030036482
    Description:

    Since their introduction in the mid-1990s, genetically modified seeds have become increasingly popular among Eastern Canadian corn and soybean producers. These producers use the seeds to limit insect damage to crops, or to provide their crops with a resistance to herbicides that would otherwise kill the plants.

    Statistics Canada has collected data on genetically modified soybeans and corn in Quebec and Ontario for the past three years. In its field crop surveys, the Agency has tracked plantings, harvestings, production and expected yields for soybeans and corn grown from genetically modified seeds.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20021036174
    Description:

    Crop production across western Canada was lower in 2001 as a result of drought conditions. The grains industry has been drawing comparisons with the 1988 season, the last year a general drought reduced production. There are differences between the drought of 2001 and the drought of 1988. This article will examine some of these differences.
