The focus of this study is to examine the risk and return trade-offs for various crop rotations and tillage systems. The geographic area represented in this study will be that contained within four soil, and five climatic zones within the Province of Alberta. The predominant crops grown in these...
An Annotated Bibliography of Crop Rotation and Tillage Literature With Special Emphasis on the Canadian PrairiesDownload
This annotated bibliography was compiled during research project 94-092 funded by Farming for the Future. Some of these references were cited in the research and others simply provided background information. The references shown here are not meant to be a comprehensive listing of literature...
The World Trade Organization is currently formulating an agenda for a new round of global trade negotiations. Therefore, the likelihood of increased competition within Canada's supply managed dairy industry is probable. Consequently, there is a greater need for producers to be concerned with...
The purpose of this study is to examine acreage, yields, and average farm prices for different cereal crops in the Western Prairie Region of Canada and to summarize trends. The crop groups considered in this study are all wheat (including durum, spring and winter wheat), oats, barley, all rye,...
A statistical overview of agriculture in the region encompassed by the Lower Souris River Watershed committee was undertaken. The region in the south east corner of the province of Saskatchewan has about 8% of the total number of farms in Saskatchewan, and this has remained relatively consistent...
Monte Carlo simulation was used to examine the on-farm economics from adoption of Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) on four representative Alberta cropping farms. Adoption of shelterbelts, buffer strips, residue management, and the addition of annual and perennial forages, field peas, and...
The processing of oats to some higher valued product before it is either sold locally or exported is an example of a value added activity. There are many potential uses for oats and many products that can be processed from oats, making it a good starting point when exploring value added in the...
This study investigates the relationships between farm size, milk yield, cost of production, and technical efficiency in the Alberta dairy industry. Estimates of a stochastic production frontier are obtained with two alternative methods; an iterative \"average frontier\" (AF) procedure and a...
An interview based survey of farm landowners in the south east corner of Saskatchewan was undertaken to evaluate the provision of wildlife habitat by agriculture. Producers were asked to provide management information regarding a piece of their land that was managed as a unit. Within the past ten...
Economic Analysis of Vegetative Buffer Zone Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) for a Mixed Farm Operation in the Lower Little Bow WatershedDownload
Vegetative buffers, if established around riparian areas, represent a type of beneficial management practice (BMP) that provide ecological goods and services in the form of improved water quality, improve wildlife/waterfowl habitat, etc. Establishing these buffers result in reduced area for...
