Soil surveys are the basis for these important insights and decisions.The feature services in this map are a combination of server hosted data, web hosted and ArcGIS Online (AGOL) hosted data.

Hourly updated weather data and related interpretations provided by Manitoba Agriculture. Weather is one of the primary factors affecting agricultural and access to current weather information is critical to agricultural operations. High quality weather data, forecasts and risk models can reduce production risk, while increasing profitability and environmental performance of the agriculture sector. Manitoba Agriculture operates a network of over 100 weather stations across Manitoba's agricultural region which provide hourly updated air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, wind speed and direction, soil temperature, and soil moisture. To learn more go to Manitoba Ag-Weather Program. Manitoba Agriculture makes every effort to verify that surveillance data and interpretations are accurate and current. Data is updated hourly. This application uses the Current Weather Conditions Web Map as its data source.
The Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP) is developed and maintained by the Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Section (RSGA) within the Agriculture Division. The CCAP combines remote sensing, GIS, and the Internet to provide reliable, objective, and timely information on crop and pasture/rangeland conditions using a mapping application for the whole Canadian agricultural area and the northern portion of the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) series of satellites carrying the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) records images of the entire Earth's surface twice a day at one kilometre resolution. This detector captures two spectral bands (red and infrared) that have proven to be extremely useful for vegetation monitoring to produce the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). NDVI image composites on crop condition have been produced by GeoManitoba until the end of the 2020 growing season. In 2021, Statistics Canada started producing the weekly composites using the application developed by Dr. Rasim Latifovic from National Resources Canada. Additional computations such as a process to remove residual clouds and statistical computations by geographic regions were applied by Statistics Canada. CCAP allowed the visualization of AVHRR data since 1987 for most of the growing weeks in Canada, between Julian weeks 15 and 41. This dataset give access to 35 years of AVHRR images in GeoTIF format and cover all the crops area during the crops growing season.
In 2014, the Earth Observation Team of the Science and Technology Branch (STB) at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) repeated the process of generating annual crop inventory digital maps using satellite imagery to for all of Canada, in support of a national crop inventory. A Decision Tree (DT) based methodology was applied using optical (Landsat-8) and radar (RADARSAT-2) based satellite images, and having a final spatial resolution of 30m. In conjunction with satellite acquisitions, ground-truth information was provided by provincial crop insurance companies and point observations from the BC Ministry of Agriculture and our regional AAFC colleagues.

This data shows spatial density of forage crops in Canada. Regions with higher calculated spatial densities represent agricultural regions of Canada in which forage crops 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 forage crops based on analysis of the 2009 to 2021 AAFC annual crop inventory data.
The Canada Land Inventory (CLI), 1:000,000, Land Capability for Agriculture dataset illustrates the varying potential of a specific area for agricultural production. Classes of land capability for agriculture are based on mineral soils grouped according to their potential and limitations for agricultural use. The classes indicate the degree of limitation imposed by the soil in its use for mechanized agriculture. The subclasses indicate the kinds of limitations that individually or in combination with others, are affecting agricultural land use. Characteristics of the soil as determined by soil surveys.

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.
