Nutrient Management Act
Ontario Pork submitted comments to OMAFRA regarding proposed changes to the Nutrient Management Act, that the Ministry defined as burden reduction opportunities for business that do not impact the requirements of the protocol or regulation.
Based on Ontario Pork’s review of the proposed changes to the protocol, we are in general agreement that the proposed changes will not impact the requirements of the regulation of protocol. There does, however, appear to be a new requirement for Nutrient Management Plan Field Sketches, of which Ontario Pork requested an amendment that would include clarification on the distance to the field boundary (e.g., 15 m) and /or an amendment to confirm that this requirement applies to only the tile inlets within the farm unit boundary.
