Ontario’s Draft Agricultural Soil Health and Conservation Strategy

The purpose of this form is to invite input on New Horizons – Ontario’s Draft Agricultural Soil Health and Conservation Strategy, which can be accessed on OMAFRA’s web page, and identify opportunities and challenges to achieving the proposed objectives and implementing the proposed actions.Healthy soil is fundamental to the success of Ontario’s agricultural sector and to a healthy environment. Maintaining and enhancing the health of our agricultural soil will help:

Sustain and enhance the productive capacity of Ontario’s farmland;
Contribute to the economic growth of the agri-food sector and food security;
Improve water quality and biodiversity; and
Help the sector mitigate and be more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you about how best to achieve this.This proposal is also posted on Ontario’s Environmental Registry – posting number 013-1373. It is a follow-up to and builds on the discussion document ‘Sustaining Ontario’s Agricultural Soils: Towards a Shared Vision’, which was released for a 90 day public consultation from August 29 to November 27, 2016 (Environmental Registry posting number 012-8468).
