Agricultural Environment Management Initiative is to facilitate the conservationand enhancement of the natural resources utilised by the NB agriculture sector
Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Aquaculture
Agricultural Environment Management Initiative 2003

The objective of the Agricultural Environment Management Initiative is to facilitate the conservation and enhancement of the natural resources utilised by the NB agriculture sector and minimise the impact of agricultural practices on the environment. The total budget for this initiative is $2,400,000. It is comprised of the following programs.
  • Nutrient Management Program - The objective of this program is to develop and implement a Nutrient Management Program that will optimise crop productivity and minimise environmental risk associated with the use of organic and inorganic fertilisers.
    • Enhanced Farmer Awareness - up to 100% to a maximum of $5000 per farm organisation to develop materials and hold workshops to introduce nutrient management concepts to producers.
    • Nutrient Application Systems - up to 50% of the cost of approved (low odour, improved distribution) application technology to a maximum of $10,000 per farm unit.
    • Adaptive Research - up to 60% to a maximum contribution of $40,000 per project for science-based research on the management of manure as a fertility resource and on the management of nutrients and pathogens to minimise water contamination.

    European Conservation Agriculture Federation (ECAF), Brussels, Belgium In large parts of the developed and developing worlds soil tillage by plough or hoe is the main cause of land degradation leading to stagnating or even declining production levels and increasing production cost. It causes the soil to become more dense and compacted, the organic matter content to be reduced and water runoff and soil erosion to increase. It also leads to droughts becoming more severe and the soil becoming less fertile and less responsive to fertiliser. There is a growing number of experiences in conditions of both mechanised and un-mechanised agriculture, on small and large farms in both temperate and tropical zones that further and significant improvements in conservation-effective agriculture are indeed possible, and acceptable to farmers, in addressing these varied concerns now strongly indicate that sustainable production systems can be achieved when the basic principles of good farming practice are applied. The terminology being adopted for such systems by FAO, ECAF and other organisations is "Conservation Agriculture". This implies conformity with all three of the following general principles: no mechanical soil disturbance, direct seeding or planting; and permanent soil cover, making particular use of crop residues and cover crops; judicious choice of crop rotations.

    T he Center for Agriculture in the Environment was jointly created by American Farmland Trust and Northern Illinois University in 1991 to help protect America's agricultural lands and to encourage healthy farming practices. This unique collaboration created a public policy research center with roots in both the private, nonprofit world and the academic community. To achieve its mission, CAE works closely with the academic, environmental and agricultural communities to raise awareness of issues by providing research and strong academic arguments for wise public policy. In addition to its research , CAE's oversees and provides support for its affiliated centers , publishes a working paper series , and organizes workshops and symposia.

    es da de el en fr it nl pt ... Search EUROPA Sustainable agriculture must meet the three related economic, social and ecological challenges and its production methods must reflect the concerns of consumers. The measures to be adopted must obviously comply with existing environmental legislation and meet the general objectives of Community environmental policy . They must be based on the provisions of the reformed CAP resulting from Agenda 2000 . Those provisions cover inter alia the policy on agricultural markets. Under the common rules on direct support schemes in those markets, Member States must lay down environmental requirements they consider to be appropriate and may make payments dependant on compliance with those requirements ( cross compliance In addition, the policy on rural development (referred to in Agenda 2000 as the "second pillar" of the CAP alongside the markets policy) includes special environmental measures, known as agri-environment measures . These provide for payments for commitments going beyond good agricultural practice. They constitute an important environmental tool, being compulsory in all rural development programmes and based on a conscious, voluntary commitment by farmers to greener agriculture. The environment is no longer seen as an "add-on" but as an essential part of agricultural and rural development and of the socio-professional life of farmers. Farmers, as the first link in the production chain, have a tremendous responsibility for the sound management of environmental resources and that responsibility must be recognised.

    Thursday, March 11, 2004 By Grant Peck, Associated Press
    Introducing the Challenge Program on Water and Food at a news conference in Bangkok, the Mekong River Commission said it aims to find ways to grow more food using less water to improve the lives of around 55 million people who live along the river, while protecting the environment.
    The commission is an intergovernmental body that coordinates development in the Mekong Basin, which runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
    "There is tension between the need for agricultural production, which requires more water and fisheries production, which relies on the natural annual flood cycle in order for fish to reproduce," said Dao Trong Tu, who heads the commission.
    More than 80 percent of the people living in the basin make a living from fishing and farming, according to the commission. More than 41 percent of the land in the heavily populated Lower Mekong Basin is used for agriculture, which accounts for 90 percent of all water use.
