The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) program has helped more than 35,000 Ontario farmers develop and implement more environmentally sustainable practices on their farms.
Ontario grain farmers have increased land use efficiency for winter wheat crops and corn by over 35% and 39% respectively. That increased efficiency means growing more wheat and corn on the same amount of land with a smaller environmental footprint.
Our soybean farmers have decreased energy usage by 28% since 1981. That means we use less energy today to grow and harvest soybeans than we ever have.
Conservation tillage saves over 170 million liters of fuel each year. That’s the equivalent of taking 122,000+ cars off the road or powering 93,000 homes.
The use of Ontario cropland with soil at very-high risk for erosion has decreased from 33% to 17% since 1981.
