Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...years 19161920, with separate figures for wheat, oats, barley, corn, rye, flax, buckwheat, peas, beans, and mixed grains, with totals for all grains and the average production and values for the 5-year period. It will be observed that the average production of wheat in the Canadian Provinces for the five years was about 222,300,000 bushels, this being considerably under the totals for 1916 and 1920, as 1918 and 1919 were lean years. The average production of all grains for the five years was approximately 696,000,000 bushels, valued at over $760,000,000. The exports of wheat during the same period averaged, in round figures, 131,500,000 bushels, or, deducting the quantities shipped to the United States, about 109,800,000 bushels. Nearly a hundred million bushels of this went to the United Kingdom. It will be noted, however, that this average is built up by war exports in the years 1915-16, 1916-17, and 1917-18, the figures dropping rapidly in the succeeding years, the exports in 1918-19, for instance, being less than one-quarter of those in 1916-17. Farm live-stock values in the tributary Provinces between 1916 and 1920 averaged about $819,000,000, of which Ontario contributed considerably more than one-third. In dairy-factory products Ontario represents an overwhelming proportion of the total, or over $58,600,000 worth out of an average value of $71,600,000. It is noticeable, however, that all four tributary Provinces show a steady increase in this branch of production during the 5-year period. In forest products figures are available for the tributary Provinces for the years 1917, 1918, and 1919, the average production of lumber being valued at about $34,500,000, of shingles $330,000, and of laths at $723,000.
