OTTAWA — Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has partnered with Statistics Canada to provide the Crop Condition Assessment Program application. The Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation, part of Natural Resources Canada, has also contributed by providing software for processing the input satellite data.
The CCAP provides information on crop and pasture conditions derived from satellite images for all agricultural regions of Canada. The CCAP database contains the mean value of the 1-kilometre resolution and the 250-metre resolution satellite pixels within each of the census agriculture regions, census divisions and census consolidated subdivisions of Canada with pasture or cropland activity.
The application will be updated on a weekly basis during the entire growing season.
