Canada: Soil conservation a priority at Prince Edward Island potato farms

Soil Conservation a priority a Prince Edward Island Potato FarmsThis week (April 17th to 23rd) is National Soil Conservation Week in Canada, and as potato farmers across Prince Edward Island are gearing up for spring planting, they are making soil conservation a priority on their farms. According to the Prince Edward Island Soil and Crop Improvement Association, 2016 is the thirtieth year of concentrated efforts by farmers and government to protect our valuable soils through programs that fund the construction of soil conservation structures such as terraces, berms and grassed waterways. Additionally, promotion of beneficial practices such as strip cropping, winter cover cropping, residue management, and retirement of sensitive land have all been essential to preventing the erosion of rich topsoil from farmers’ fields.
