Specialty Crops in Western Canada
Specialty Crops in Western Canada Based on Statistics Canada's November Estimate of Production of 2004 Principal Field Crops and the Alberta 2004 Specialty Crop Survey, total production of specialty crops in Western Canada in 2004 increased significantly from a year earlier, says Alberta Ag’s “Alberta 2005 Specialty Crop Report.” Increased acreage and improved yields both contributed to the higher production in 2004. Producers in both Saskatchewan and Alberta planted more acres of specialty crops in 2004, which more than offset a reduction of area in Manitoba. Total seeded area of specialty crops in Western Canada in 2004 was estimated at 8.25 million acres. Of this total, 6.23 million acres or 75% were in Saskatchewan. Alberta accounted for 14% of the total seeded area, Manitoba 10%, and British Columbia one per cent. A total of 7.43 million acres of specialty crops were harvested in Western Canada in 2004, compared to 7.11 million acres in 2003. The four major specialty crops grown in Western Canada are dry peas, lentils, canary seed and mustard seed. In 2004, dry peas remained the largest specialty crop in Western Canada, with total seeded area estimated at 3.43 million acres. Dry peas accounted for 42% of the total specialty crop area in Western Canada, while lentils represented 23%. Canary seed and mustard seed accounted for 11% and 9%, respectively.
