  • Articles and reports: 21-021-M2007001
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The analysis contained in this article is based on results from the 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS). It presents information on various practices used to manage water on Canadian farms. Practices surveyed are divided in two groupings: those used to protect natural sources of water - maintaining vegetation on areas adjacent to natural sources of water, management of grazing livestock, conservation measures for natural wetland areas, and disposal of milkhouse wash water and toxic wastes; and those related to the use of water for farming and household activities types of irrigation systems and testing of domestic water.

    Results show that farm practices impacting water quality and quantity are significantly used by Canadian farmers. Higher adoption rates of environmental measures could likely be achieved to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint. These results can assist governments, farmers and non-governmental organizations in targeting actions and in the promotion and development of new farm environmental programs and practices.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The series Farm Environmental Management in Canada presents key information on agri-environmental practices used on Canadian farms. The series includes several articles on themes such as manure storage, manure application, water management, chemical inputs use and sustainable land management practices. These analyses are supported by data from the 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) and supplemented with information from the 2001 Census of Agriculture. FEMS is the only dedicated national source of information on a broad range of farming practices that impact on the environment.

    The FEMS survey collects farm-level information on manure management practices, sustainable grazing systems, crop nutrient management, pesticides application practices, land and water management practices (including irrigation farming practices), and whole farm environmental management. It provides benchmark information for anyone with an interest in agri-environmental issues.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Manure Management in Canada presents information on various characteristics of manure management as practised on Canadian farms. This analysis is based on results of the 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) and discussion focuses mainly on farms raising some level of livestock, irrespective of the major commodities produced.

  • Articles and reports: 21-021-M2003001
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Sustainable development and environmental health are priorities of the agriculture sector. Canadian farmers are actively involved in environmental initiatives and are adopting farming practices that minimize risk to air, water and soil, while contributing to the conservation of biodiversity. The 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS), conducted by Statistics Canada in March 2002, was carried out on behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in order to measure current farm environmental initiatives and farming practices.

    The survey collected information from 16,000 farmers on the management of manure, grazing systems, crop nutrients, pesticides, soil and water, as well as whole farm environmental management.
