Annual Crop Inventory 2021
In 2021, 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, Sentinel-2) and radar (RCM) 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 (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, & Quebec); point observations from: PEI Department of Environment, Water and Climate Change; Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs; University of Guelph - Ridgetown campus; British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture; and data collection supported by our regional AAFC Research and Development Centres in St. John's, Charlottetown, Kentville, Fredericton, Guelph and Summerland.
Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and forest fires, complete sampling coverages in BC was not possible, as a result the general agriculture class (120) is found in this province in areas where there was no ground data collected. Data for Alberta is not available at this time.
