Soil conservation attitudes and practices among Saskatchewan farmers
During the past few years, environmental protection and resource conservation have become important goals of society. Concomitant with this is an interest in ensuring that our agricultural production systems are both sustainable, and having minimal negative impacts on the environment. As research and extension personnel initiate programs to assist in soil conservation and sustainable agriculture, it is necessary to have a good idea of what the commonly held attitudes are among farmers, and some statistics about current management practices. To this end, we initiated a survey of Saskatchewan farmers.
