The province of Ontario recently released a report on to develop a strategy to sustain and support healthy soil so land can be productive today and well into the future. Titled, New Horizons: Ontario’s Draft Agricultural Soil Health and Conservation, the 56-page draft document aims to implement strategies to minimize a number of threats to healthy soil.

The New Horizons strategy builds upon the vision, goals, objectives and concepts presented in the Sustaining Ontario’s Agricultural Soils: Towards a Shared Vision discussion document that was released in 2016.

Members of the growing community are encouraged to review New Horizons and provide thoughts and feedback on the draft strategy. Input will help guide the development of a final strategy for soil health and conservation in the province, to be released in the spring of 2018.

Feedback on the document can be emailed to SoilHealth@ontario.ca.
