2007 Nutrient Management Protocol for Ontario Regulation 267/03 Made under the Nutrient Management Act, 2002

Part 2 - Defining Your Operations

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.
