State of the Industry Report on Soil Management

We are pleased to share the State of the Industry Report on Soil Management for Ontario Field Tree Nursery Producers! The report  follows our recent Soil Management Survey for Nursery Growers and outlines the range of soil management practices implemented by growers throughout the province, identifying areas of interest where our research may contribute toward advancing soil health and management for tree production. Special thanks to Landscape Ontario, Walker Industries and our five nursery partners: Connon Nurseries, Hillen Nursery, Kobes Nurseries, NVK Nurseries and Winkelmolen Nursery for their openness, patience and guidance in developing and producing this research.
