The H-3 Project focus is to encourage practices that improve soil management as well as test the acceptance of soil Best Management Practices (BMPs) in York, Durham, Haliburton, Peterborough and City of Kawartha Lakes (formerly Victoria County). The project provides support for soil sampling to farmers within the five counties and regions, while coordinating the lab analysis and showcasing the linkage between on-the-ground-practices and GIS mapping capabilities. Additionally, the program includes educational workshops to participants on the overview of soil testing, soil nutrient fertility and crop nutrient budgeting.
