SHARING THE PROGRESS OF ONTARIO AGRICULTURE

WE'RE RE-MODELLING!

Provincial policy makers use watershed models that currently rely on either localized or sorely outdated farm data from the 1970s. Farmers know more than anyone, a lot has changed on the farm. And considering the importance of water quality issues and policy to farmers, it is important to update these models to to reflect the tremendous progress in Ontario agriculture.  

DECISIONS BASED ON REAL DATA, NOT ASSUMPTIONS

WHICH AREAS ARE BEING SURVEYED?

agrimodel watershed areas

These watershed areas have been chosen for the survey because they are representative of the various soil types and commodities across southwestern Ontario. As well, six of these watersheds were surveyed in the 1970s and will be able to give us a better idea of how far Ontario agriculture has come over the decades.
