  • Articles and reports: 96-325-X201400113006
    Geography: Canada
    Description: As crops grow, they deplete the soil’s fertility by absorbing nutrients from the land. These nutrients, need to be replenished in order to ensure that there is something in the soil for the next year’s crops. Canadian agriculture relies heavily on commercial fertilizers as well as manure to replenish soil’s nutrients. This article examines how farmers provide their crops with the nutrients they need to grow and how these farming practices have changed over time.

    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.
