Title: A geographic analysis of the sunflower industry in Manitoba
Authors: Pattle, Calvin Stewart
Issue Date: 1972
Abstract: The principal objective of this study is to trace the development and growth of the sunflower crop in Manitoba from its introduction on a commercial basis to the present-day. Within this general framework, the more specific goals are: (a) To reveal the reasons for the introduction of sunflowers in Manitoba. (b) To ascertain the reasons for constructing a processing firm at Altona and relate the types of products it manufactures. (c) To determine the location of the sunflower acreage, and identify the climatic and physical conditions of this environment. (d) To survey the research being conducted to improve the sunflower plant. Since 1970, the Manitoba sunflower acreage has increased markedly. This growth indicates that the role of sunflowers in the provincial economy is becoming more important.
