Environmental sustainability of Canadian agriculture / Clearwater, R.L., T. Martin and T. Hoppe (editors). : A22-201/2016E-PDF

"Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has developed a set of science-based agri-environmental indicators (AEIs) that integrate information on soils, climate and topography with statistics on land use and crop and livestock management practices. The indicators provide valuable information on the overall environmental risks and conditions in agriculture and how these change over time. The indicators are designed to be sensitive to the considerable differences in conditions and in the commodity mix across Canada, which are reflected in the significant variations in environmental performance between regions. At the same time, the systematic approach and common data sets used allow this information to be scaled up to the national level, enabling the identification of trends that may be consistent in all parts of the country. This publication can be used as a report card of agri-environmental performance for producers, consumers and the international community and can be used to identify areas where further efforts are required. It can also provide valuable information that decision makers can draw from when developing and evaluating agricultural policy”--Executive summary, p. 1.
