Can I bury electrical cable for an outside patio lamp post?

I have some CSA NMWU 2-14 300V (-40C) FT1 LL39965 electrical cable that I would like to bury and run outside my house to a patio lamp post in the yard. Can I use this cable (not sure what all the letters on the wire mean)? Can I bury it in the dirt or do I need to enclose it in a pipe?

The markings are as follows:
CSA = Canadian Standards Association - a laboratory certification group similar to Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
NMWU = Non-Metallic sheathed, Wet location, Underground (direct burial)
2-14 = 2 conductor, 14 gauge
300V = certified for applications up to 300 volts
(-40C) = certified for applications down to -40 Celsius
FT1 = flame propagation rating as tested by CSA
LL39965 = Manufacturer code

In short, the wire is approved for direct burial applications.
