2.1 Defining Farm Units for Agricultural Operations
When submitting a nutrient management strategy ("NMS") or a nutrient
management plan ("NMP") for approval a declaration has to be made
that identifies all the land and any facilities in the farm unit.
The Farm Unit Declaration Form, which is found at the Government
of Ontario Central Forms web site is used to make this declaration.
One form is required for each farm unit declared and where an
operation identifier has been provided by the Ontario Ministry
of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs ("OMAFRA"), it must be
recorded on the Farm Unit Declaration Form.
Throughout this document a reference to a farm unit refers to
a farm unit on which an agricultural operation is carried out.
