Newfoundland and Labrador report growth in province's agriculture sector

The agri sector in Canada’s most easterly province has more than doubled the province’s food self-sufficiency in fruit and vegetable production. Officials state that food self-sufficiency hit more than 21 per cent this year. It exceeded the province's target, set in 2017, of growing food self-sufficiency to 20 per from 10 per cent by the end of 2022.

That target was based on the amount of agricultural Crown land developed for fruit and vegetable production. Since 2016, the amount of Crown land developed for agricultural production has more than doubled, from 590 hectares to 1,212 hectares.

Provincial growers are producing traditional crops like potatoes, cabbage, turnips, carrots and strawberries, as well as products like broccoli, kale, onion, asparagus and cranberry.
