Application of the revised scheme for the typology of world agriculture to Canada

Abstract

The paper presents preliminary results and discussion related to the appli-cation of the third version of the typology of world agriculture (Kostrowicki 1976) to Canada. As such, it represents a further stage in an iterative process, whereby successive versions of the global typology scheme are tested at the national level, in an effort to provide both substantive results and critical eva-luation of the scheme itself. Although, as Kostrowicki notes, the third version is the last for which the I.G.U. Commission has responsibility, the process will undoubtedly continue.
