Best Management Practices

Farming is a business with many risks: the weather, finances, and market uncertainties. Today, we also realize that certain farming practices may create environmental risks that affect the water quality.

Producers experience some of the resulting problems themselves such as lower crop yields, soil losses and water pollution. But rural and urban neighbours may also be affected. Not all problems are severe and not all farms have problems. But for those producers who are affected, practical solutions exist. This web page is intended to help you explore workable solutions for soil, water and habitat problems that are covered in greater detail in the books and other products of the Best Management Practices Program.
