Focus on the Environment: Agriculture is playing its part in water conservation

Agriculture has reduced water use considerably through improved health, housing, breeding, feeding and management and our farmers will continue to provide leadership in water use


With Canadian, North American and world populations expected to increase significantly over the next 20 to 30 years, the demand for fresh water will rise dramatically. This will escalate the need for water for food, fibre and fuel.
