Farmland Health Check-up

In partnership with Ontario’s Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and Professional Agrologists (P.Ag), the Farmland Health Check-Up is an opportunity to assess risks to on-farm soil health and water quality.

Details on future opportunities to complete a Farmland Health Check-Up will be announced later this spring.

Details on future cost share intakes being delivered by OSCIA will be provided as funding opportunities are announced.

The Farmland Health Check-Up provides farmers with a unique opportunity to work with a CCA or P.Ag free of charge. Three key fields on your farm will be assessed to establish both baseline farm health levels, and target levels.

Assess your farm for:

  • Water Erosion
  • Wind Erosion
  • Tillage Erosion
  • Subsurface Compaction
  • Organic Matter
  • Soil Life
  • Soil Chemistry
  • Phosphorus
  • Nitrogen
  • Pollinator Health
