Fodder Crops and Intensive Crops Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows seven condensed maps showing the distribution of areas devoted to growing fodder, hay, corn for silage, sugar beets, potatoes, vegetable crops, orchards, and tobacco circa 1951. The hay map includes all cultivated hay, including alfalfa sown alone but excluding oats and other grains for hay. For the vegetable map, the crops include cabbage, carrots, beans, peas, onions, sweet corn, tomatoes, asparagus, beets, cauliflower, celery, lettuce, and spinach but exclude potatoes, turnips, swedes and mangolds. Except for Newfoundland, the vegetables were grown mainly for sale. The two maps dealing with orchards show only the acreage devoted to tree fruits, mainly apples, pears, peaches, plums and cherries. Farms with fewer than 25 fruit trees were ignored, as were fruit trees that were definitely abandoned and worthless. The maps on this plate are accompanied by pie charts showing the percentage distribution of seeded or planted areas by province for each type of crop. 2017-01-26 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Agricultureagri-food industryagri-food productsagricultureagriculture statisticscropsfarmsforage crops Download the English JPG through HTTPJPG http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_3_ed/eng/economic/resourceindustries/067.jpg Download the English PDF through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_3_ed/eng/economic/resourceindustries/067.pdf Download the French JPG through HTTPJPG http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_3_ed/fra/economic/resourceindustries/067.jpg Download the French PDF through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_3_ed/fra/economic/resourceindustries/067.pdf
