Ontario is one of the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada.

Ontario is fourth-largest jurisdiction in total area when the territories of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are l: Toronto. Distribution Maps of Dominant Soil Orders - images and maps. The Twelve Orders of Soil Taxonomy - poster. Other Classification Systems. Universal Soil Classification System - a Working Group under Commission (Soil Classification) which is part of Division 1 (Soil in Space and Time) of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS).

Soil surveys have been published for most of the agricultural areas, and many surrounding areas, across Canada. Data from these surveys comprise the most detailed soil inventory information in the National Soil Database (NSDB). Version 3 was created by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in the 's by amalgamating version 2 data. A number of studies, as well as comments from regional extension agents and producers, indicate that the soil on Québec farms has deteriorated. Since the inventory on soil degradation was released in , no studies have been done that can give us an idea of the current state of Québec’s agricultural soils.

increased soil and agricultural productivity go hand-in-hand with reducing pollution of the atmosphere. This book provides much of the scientiÞc information needed to develop an effective strategy for CanadaÕs agricultural sector. Let us hope that this cooperative way of approaching the problems confronting agriculture and the global atmosphere. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada supports the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector through initiatives that promote innovation and competitiveness.

Nineteenth-century farm families needed land for the next generation. Their quest shaped agricultural settlement across Canada.

This overview of rural history in Quebec, Ontario, and the Prairies provides a new perspective on the ways in which agriculture and the family farm were central to the country's expansion and essential to understanding social, political, and economic changes.

Ontario crop area varied littlebut with large shifts in crop types and production area in eastern Canada was declining or stable, while in western Canada continued.

Soils. Healthy soil is the foundation of agriculture. By encouraging practices that both conserve and enhance the quality of our Ontario's soil resources, we improve agricultural productivity as well as protecting the environment.

These soil reports and maps are of a reconnaissance nature. They are suitable for obtaining a general overview of the location and extent of major soil types. In absolute terms, agricultural production increased considerably.

For example, production of wheat, a major Canadian crop, based initially on the improved variety Marquis, trebled from to New crops, such as canola—improved varieties of rapeseed—on the Prairies and soybeans in Ontario, are now widely grown.

Canada is one of the largest agricultural producers and exporters in the world. As with other developed nations, the proportion of the population and GDP devoted to agriculture fell dramatically over the 20th century but it remains an important element of the Canadian economy.

A wide range of agriculture is practised in Canada, from sprawling wheat fields of the prairies to summer produce of the Okanagan valley. The economy of Quebec is diversified and post-industrial with an average potential for growth.

Manufacturing and service sectors dominate the economy. If Quebec were a country, its economy would be ranked the 44th largest in the world just behind Norway.

Quebec is also ranked the 21st largest in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and cy: Canadian dollar (CAD). The goal of the soil evaluation and monitoring theme is “The health and status of Ontario’s agricultural soils are tracked over time.” Some of the actions are to increase the capacity to track farm scale soil health with new tools for farmers and developing provincial-scale measures of success during implementation.

The rate of degradation of soils in Canada has slowed, but it still is happening at a significant rate and there is still a lot to learn. There are no soil-perfect systems yet for crop production, attendees at the Summit on Canadian Soil Health held recently in Guelph heard repeatedly.The labour shortage also led to government and private sector support for the employment of women, and some high school girls and boys, in agriculture.

The Farm Service Corps, for example, was an initiative of the Ontario government similar in purpose to the national Soldiers of the Soil program, but aimed mainly at women.The food production potential of the world is decreasing every day.

Ønce calculated from various data that we are losing at least 10 ha of arable land each minute (five because of soil erosion, three because of soil salinization, one because of non-agricultural use and one because of soil degradation).Cited by:
