Environmental Stewardship and Product Branding - Modeling GWP Reductions Associated with Sub-Watershed - Wide Transition to Organic Farming

Environmental Stewardship and Product Branding - Modeling GWP Reductions Associated with Sub-Watershed - Wide Transition to Organic Farming

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Nova Scotia Agricultural College (NSAC)

Three selected sub-watersheds from across Canada were modeled for global warming potential (GWP) reductions associated with full transition to organic agriculture, using field-generated data from cluster partners, existing geospatial data, and existing knowledge of the transition from conventional to organic land use. The work furthered understanding of the potential environmental benefits associated with widespread adoption of organic farming, a topic for which little research has been carried out in Canada.
