5. Agriculture And The Environment - Legislation
All of agriculture and Agri Food Canada s environmental assesments are listedon the Federal Environmental Assessment index found at the Canadian
The federal government is or will be responsible for the implementation of a number of key pieces of environmental legislation, including the Canadian Environment Assessment Act (CEAA), the Canadian Environment Protection Act (CEPA), and the proposed Species-At-Risk Act (SARA). In general, the objectives of these laws are to conserve Canada's environmental resources and minimize public health risks caused by environmental degradation and pollution. Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA) Environmental assessment (EA) is an important tool to ensure that environmental concerns are addressed in project proposals, by reviewing their environmental implications, and by making informed decisions on how to proceed with the projects. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Act was first implemented on January 19, 1995, replacing the Federal Environmental Assessment and Review Process Guidelines Order that had been in place since 1984. It requires federal authorities, such as Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), to subject certain projects to environmental assessments where they are the proponent, administrator of the land involved, contributing funds, or have a regulatory responsibility that has been identified in CEAA's Regulations. To implement the Act, AAFC has guideline materials tailored to its operations. The coordination of implementation issues are addressed through an interbranch committee of EA coordinators that is chaired by the Environment Bureau. The Environment Bureau plays the lead role in providing departmental input to the

Soil Zones

Soils were considered as a natural body by Russian and US scientists in the late 1800s. This allowed scientists to study and classify soils with the objective of trying to understand soil formation from an environmental perspective. They recognized that soils were formed by weathering of surface deposits or "parent materials" by processes that were
  • physical;
  • chemical; and
  • biological. The concept of soil forming factors allows scientists to understand and classify soils more clearly. Parent Materials Soils are formed by weathering of "parent materials". These materials have many origins such as bedrock surfaces, aolian (wind blown), lacustrine (from glacial lake beds), alluvium (river) and organic (peat) deposits. Many of our soils have been developing since the last ice age - some 10 thousand years ago. The advance and retreat of glaciers ivolved most of the province except for the highlands associated with Cypress Hills region. Soil is in a dynamic equilibrium. It is always changing as a result of its interaction with the environment. As wind and water erode particles from the surface of the profile, weathering produces more soil from the parent material. If loss of soil by erosion exceeds the production of new soil by weathering then catastophic consequences can occur as seen in the "dirty thirties".

    Intended Outcomes
    The participants will
    • Recognize the role of phosphorus (P) in controlling eutrophication.
    • Identify what happens to P in soil when it is added via manure and fertilizer.
    • Learn what practical farming measures can be used to minimize P loss.
    • Target cost-beneficial best management practices, understand how water moves within a landscape, and learn where large sources of P exist.
    • Review innovative products and measures being developed to help producers manage P.

    How does Biodiversity benefit natural and agricultural ecosystems?
    PRODUCTIVITY: Conservation and management of broad-based genetic diversity within domesticated species have been improving agricultural production for 10,000 years, however diverse natural populations have been providing food and other products for much longer. A wide range of species provides many thousands of products through agriculture and from the harvest of natural populations. High production levels are sustained through maximising the beneficial impact of ecosystem services for agricultural, modified and natural ecosystems. ADAPTATION: A diverse range of organisms contributes to the resilience of agricultural and natural ecosystems, their capacity to recover from environmental stress and their ability to evolve. Informed adaptive management of agricultural and natural biodiversity, above and below ground and under water secures sustained production. MAINTENANCE OF ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONS: Essential functions such as nutrient cycling, decomposition of organic matter, crusted or degraded soil rehabilitation, pest and disease regulation, water quality, and pollination are maintained by a wide range of biologically diverse populations in natural ecosystems and in and near agricultural ecosystems. Maintaining this diversity of species and building on and enhancing ecosystem functions reduces external input requirements by increased nutrient availability, improved water use and soil structure, and natural control of pests.

    The Centre for the Study of Agriculture, Food and Environment is affiliated with New Zealand and the Pacific in Global Context , a research theme at the University of Otago.
    The researchers affiliated to CSAFE have conducted a wide range of research on socio-economic issues surrounding new 'sustainable' systems of food production, grower/farmer behaviour, trade/regulatory, and retail/consumer trends in relation to food products, food safety and environmental outcomes.
    Evaluating the adoption and development of organic and Integrated Pest Management systems.
    Through the Public Good Science Fund, the government has funded ongoing evaluation of new systems of production like organic and IPM food production. These evaluations have taken the form of regional studies, industry case studies, and evaluations of the total organic industry in New Zealand. These studies have included: These studies have outlined the varied ways in which organic or Integrated Pest Management systems have been used to incorporate sustainable agriculture principles into food production.
    One theme of recent research has been the kinds of decisions made by producers regarding new production systems and the barriers to adoption of new systems. In previous years this has been directed at comparisons between conventional, organic and IPM systems. In 2000 ongoing research is evaluating the potential adoption of GM and organic technologies by conventional farmers.
