On behalf of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) please find attached our submission regarding the proposed changes to the values found in the Nutrient Management Tables 1 and 2 of the Nutrient Management Protocol. OFA is in favour of the periodic review and update of these values to reflect new scientific data and changes in industry practice. However, OFA remains disappointed that farmers are still required to endure the substantive compliance cost to engage a consultant to complete and submit a new NMP for review, on a farm that has not had any substantive changes. OFA has made repeated requests for the removal of the five-year Nutrient Management Plan (NMP) cessation when there have not been any substantial changes to the farm operation.
