    The Grain Elevators in Canada – 2013 dataset maps the list of grain elevators in Canada as provided by the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC). The elevators have been located as much as possible to an actual location rather than generalizing to the station name centroid. Additionally car spot information from CN, CP and the grain companies has been added where this has been published. This dataset attempts to provide a temporal and geographical extent of the grain elevators in Canada.

    This data series was compiled by AAFC and Statistics Canada using a combination of agroclimate data and satellite-derived Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data for the current growing season. The forecast is made based on a statistical model using historical yield, climate and NDVI data.

    The Agri-Environmental Indicator - Agriculture Ammonia Emissions datasets provides estimated amounts of ammonia (NH3) emitted into the atmosphere through agricultural activities. Products in this data series present results for predefined areas as defined by the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC v.3.2) data series, uniquely identified by SOIL_LANDSCAPE_ID values.

    The Grain Elevators in Canada - 2018 dataset maps the list of grain elevators in Canada as provided by the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC). The elevators have been located as much as possible to an actual location rather than generalizing to the station name centroid. Additionally car spot information from CN, CP and the grain companies has been added where this has been published.

    Crop rotation is an agricultural production and land management practice beneficial to sustainable agriculture in Canada. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) produces crop rotation data annually showing the crop rotations used within the agricultural extent of Canada for the last four complete growing seasons (based on available data). This data can be used by producers, land managers, and policy makers to assess current rotations to assist in future land management decisions.Crop rotation data is derirved from AAFC's publicly-available annual crop inventory data.

    The "Agri-Environmental Indicator Risk of Soil Salinization" dataset estimates the risk of accumulation of soluble salts on agricultural lands in the Canadian Prairies. At high levels, the accumulation of these salts in soil and groundwater in the landscape can inhibit the growth of many plant species.

    The Agri-Environmental Indicator Risk of Water Contamination by Pesticides dataset reports the annual and semi-decadal status of pesticide transport to surface water, the concentration of pesticide in ground water, and the risk of water contamination by pesticide. Products in this data series present results for predefined areas as defined by the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC v.3.2) data series, uniquely identified by SOIL_LANDSCAPE_ID values.

    The Grain Elevators in Canada - 2021 dataset maps the list of grain elevators in Canada as provided by the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC). The elevators have been located as much as possible to an actual location rather than generalizing to the station name centroid. Additionally car spot information from CN, CP and the grain companies has been added where this has been published. This dataset attempts to provide a temporal and geographical extent of the grain elevators in Canada.

    The maximum wind speed during the forecast period km/hr (mdws). Week 1 and week 2 forecasted index is available daily from September 1 to August 31. Week 3 and week 4 forecasted index is available weekly (Thursday) from September 1 to August 31. Winds can significantly influence crop growth and yield mainly due to mechanical damage of plant vegetative and reproductive organs, an imbalance of plant-soil-atmosphere water relationships, and pest and disease distributions in agricultural fields. The maximum wind speed and the number of strong wind days over the forecast period represent short term and extended strong wind events respectively. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) have together developed a suite of extreme agrometeorological indices based on four main categories of weather factors: temperature, precipitation, heat, and wind. The extreme weather indices are intended as short-term prediction tools and generated using ECCC’s medium range forecasts to create a weekly index product on a daily and weekly basis.

    The number of days during the forecast period with an average wind speed greater than 30 km/h (nswd). Week 1 and week 2 forecasted index is available daily from September 1 to August 31.
