Map 2

Map 2 shows the amount of phosphorus produced by livestock through manure, in kilograms per hectare, by sub-sub-drainage area (SSDAs) in Canada. Areas with the highest intensity of phosphorus production in 2006, with over 10 kg of phosphorus produced per hectare, were found in south-western Ontario, south-eastern Quebec and southern Manitoba. Other hotspots where intensity was high, but not in the highest category, include central and southern Alberta.
