Note(s):
The data for land management practices are reported for the year preceding the census year. Any differences between the results by drainage region and national totals are due to data suppression to protect confidentiality. See Statistics Canada, 2008, Census of Agriculture: Environmental Geography Aggregations of Census Farm Units (survey number 8012) for further details. Drainage regions are part of Statistics Canada's standard drainage area classification. See Statistics Canada, Standards Division, 2009, Standard Drainage Area Classification (SDAC) 2003, www.statcan.gc.ca/subjects-sujets/standard-norme/sdac-ctad/sdac-ctad-eng.htm for further details.
