PIXMOD Manitoba Prototype from Agroecological Resource Area (ARA) Database
Simulated Wheat Yields: Manitoba Prototype
This file was created during an initial stage of the development of the ARA maps. It contains output from the PIXMOD model for the province of Manitoba. The boundaries used to define the ARAs during this prototype stage differ from the finalized version (the boundaries in the agricultural areas of the province were essentially unchanged, but more ARA polygons were added in the north). The climate stations, years of data used (1964-1983), and in some cases, the soil series used, may also differ from those used to produce the files documented in SIMYLDWHT. Nevertheless, because this file was extensively validated, it is considered to be an important part of the ARA database.

One record per ARA per year per soil code per scenario.
