The “Biomass Agriculture Inventory 1-in-10 Probability” dataset is a standalone summary table that contains the estimated 1-in-10 year low for agricultural residue yield and crop production for each Biomass Report Framework. It provides the tenth percentile values for the years 1985-2010. It includes straw or stover yield information for barley, wheat, flax, oats and corn, and crop production information for barley, wheat, flax, oats, corn, canola and soybean. Residue yields were derived from crop-to-residue ratios and climactic data. Crop production area is the area reported as being in agricultural production by Statistics Canada. This dataset also includes information about the type of tillage used in the area, demand for straw used for cattle bedding and feed, and the amount of residue that should remain on the field to prevent soil erosion, which is determined by the type of tillage used.
