dc.description.abstract The Soil and Water Environmental Enhancement Program (SWEEP) was initiated in 1986 with an overall mandate to: reduce Ontario's Non-Point Source (NPS) loadings of phosphorus to Lake Erie from agricultural sources by 200 tonnes, and maintain or improve the productivity of the primary agricultural sector in Southwestern Ontario by reducing or correcting soil erosion and degradation. The Pilot Watershed Study (PWS) is a major SWEEP sub-program aimed at evaluating and demonstrating the benefits of established conservation farming systems at the watershed and smaller scales. This report provides the executive summary of the study.
