    The “Municipal Solid Waste Biomass Inventory” dataset is a stand-alone product that provides information on the calculated amount of Municipal Solid Waste within each BIMAT grid cell that includes a population centre. Data was provided by National Research Council Canada, with estimates based on census data collected in 2016. This dataset was calculated using an area-weighted analysis between population centres across Canada, Municipal Solid Waste data and the Biomass Report Framework fishnet. It includes information for total residential municipal solid waste, total organic waste (food and yard) and total paper waste.

    The “Biomass Agriculture Inventory 1-in-10 Probability” dataset is a table that contains the estimated 1-in-10 year low for agricultural residue yield and crop production for each Biomass Report Framework. It provides the tenth percentile values for the years 1985-2016. The table includes straw or stover information for barley, wheat, flax, oats and corn, and crop information for barley, wheat, flax, oats, corn, canola and soybean. This dataset also includes information about the type of tillage used in the area and demand for straw for cattle bedding and feed. These values are derived from Statistics Canada data. Additionally, the dataset includes the amount of agricultural residue calculated as necessary to remain on the field to prevent soil degradation. Soil degradation is determined by the type of tillage in use as well as the landscape of the area.

    This dataset is no longer maintained by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and should be considered as an archived product. For current estimates of the agricultural extent in Canada please refer to the Agricultural Ecumeme produced by Statistics Canada. https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/en/catalogue/92-639-X The Agriculture Extent of Canada derived from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) was obtained from the GeoGratis web site (www.geogratis.ca). All polygons with an area less than 50 Km sq were eliminated by GeoGratis before we received the data. This product allows the user to see the significant areas of cropland and rangeland across Canada.

    The “Biomass Inventory Cartographic Layer” dataset provides the information that is used with the Biomass Report Framework to generate a visual representation of the availability of agricultural and forestry biomass and municipal solid waste in Canada. In addition to yield and production information for biomass produced by the agricultural and forestry industries, this dataset also provides information about the demand for agricultural residues for cattle feed and bedding, tillage systems currently in use on agricultural lands, and land suitability for hybrid poplar and willow plantations that are grown specifically to produce biomass. Agricultural information includes the median annual residue yield and available residue amounts. Residue yields were calculated using crop-to-residue ratios. The available residue information includes the amount that is available after adjusting for the estimated demand of straw used for cattle feed and bedding. Forestry estimates include average residue production, based on forestry activities including permitted amounts of harvesting, mills in operation and mill production. Municipal Solid Waste information includes organic waste (food and yard), paper waste and total residential municipal solid waste (which includes organic and paper waste, among others).

    Crop development stage in a numerical scale. All living organisms move from one stage of development to the next over time. For annual crops, it life cycle (growing season) completed within a year. Crop water use differs from one stage to another mostly due to the differences in the amount of green leaves, thus crop stage is closely related to its water consumption and water stress condition. Crop stages are mostly controlled by growing season heat accumulation and regulated by day-length crop some crops. The crop stages provided here are determined by a biometeorlogical time scale model (Robertson, 1968) for cool season crops (wheat, barley etc.) , and a Crop Heat Unit (Brown and Bootsma, 1993) algorithm for warm season crops (corn and soybean etc.).

    The “Biomass Agriculture Inventory Median Values” dataset is a table that contains the median agricultural residue yield and crop production for each Biomass Report Framework cell. It provides the median annual value for the years 1985-2016. The table includes straw or stover information for barley, wheat, flax, oats and corn, and crop information for barley, wheat, flax, oats, corn, canola and soybean. This dataset also includes information about the type of tillage used in the area and demand for straw used for cattle bedding and feed. These values are derived from Statistics Canada data. Additionally, the dataset includes the amount of agricultural residue calculated as necessary to remain on the field to prevent soil degradation. The risk of soil degradation is directly related to the type of tillage in use as well as the landscape attributes of the area.

    These products represent crop health indices derived from the Versatile Soil Moisture Budget (VSMB) model using crop specific coefficients and station based precipitation and temperature measurements to simulate crop growth. The VSMB model simulates soil moisture dynamics and water stress conditions based on water availability in the soil profile and simulated evapotranspiration during the crop growing season. Crop phenological stages, which are related to crop water use, are determined by a biometeorlogical time scale model (Robertson, 1968) for cool season crops (wheat, barley etc.) and a Crop Heat Unit (Brown and Bootsma, 1993) algorithm for warm season crops (corn and soybean etc.).

    Ces données, tirées du Recensement de l’agriculture de 2011, proviennent de la documentation publiée ou préliminaire décrivant le secteur des céréales et des légumineuses. L’ensemble de données a été créé pour faciliter la description géographique et l’analyse du secteur, ainsi que la production de rapports connexe. La sélection de variables du Recensement de l’agriculture de 2011 s’est appuyée sur le document « Projet de stratégie scientifique de la DGST pour les céréales et les légumineuses » (version 21 produite le 25 février 2014) document dans lequel il est écrit: « Voici la liste des céréales et des légumineuses qui relèvent des programmes de la DGST, et par conséquent de la présente stratégie scientifique sectorielle: Céréales; blé (toutes catégories), orge (de brasserie et fourragère), avoine, seigle, triticale; maïs-grain. Légumineuses; haricots secs (blanc et de couleur), pois secs (verts, jaunes et autres), lentilles, pois chiches.» Pour plus d’information, consulter : www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/metadonnees/5a8973f8-1d7c-4ead-a1a6-2883b7b9a8b6

    This data shows spatial density of oats cultivation in Canada. Regions with higher calculated spatial densities represent agricultural regions of Canada in which oats are more expected. Results are provided as rasters with numerical values for each pixel indicating the spatial density calculated for that location. Higher spatial density values represent higher likelihood to have oats based on analysis of the 2009 to 2021 AAFC annual crop inventory data.

    Les Silos à grains du Canada – jeu de données contient la liste des silos à grains au Canada telle qu’elle est communiquée par la Commission canadienne des grains (CCG). Les silos ont été localisés dans toute la mesure du possible selon leur emplacement réel, plutôt qu’une généralisation au point milieu du nom de la gare. De plus, l’information relative aux places de wagons du CN, du CP et des entreprises céréalières a été ajoutée lorsqu’elle a été publiée. Le présent jeu de données vise à offrir l’étendue temporelle et géographique des silos à grains au Canada. www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/metadonnees/5e0b5778-80cd-4697-8b84-23b4a814c1ae
