AbstractWheat is the most important economic crop in Canada. Wheat is grown commercially in all provinces except Newfoundland and Labrador, with most of the production being concentrated in the Prairie Provinces and Ontario. In 1996, production was just short of 30 million tonnes. The domestic use of wheat crop totals about 8 million tonnes per year. The rest, about 19 million tonnes depending on the current years production is exported, almost all of it as grain. Exports of Canadian grown wheat are shipped around the world. The largest market is in Asia (China, Bangladesh, and Japan). Although Canada produces and exports a large volume of wheat, it rivals with Australia and the European Union only for second place among the worlds exporting nations. The perennial leader is United States.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
