Canadian grain farmers have been very pro-active regarding their land-use. “Since the mid 1980’s the adoption of no till and reduced till in Canada has increased dramatically, especially in the prairie region. No till essentially involves eliminating all tillage operations, and placing seed, fertilizer or manure with minimal soil disturbance.” (https://agriculture.canada.ca/en/agricultural-production/soil-and-land/soil-management/flexibility-no-till-and-reduced-till-systems-ensures-success-long-term).
We have reduced the number of passes that equipment makes over the land, therefore decreasing any disturbance or releasing of stored carbon and minimizing fuel use. Well over 70% of western Canadian farmers for years have been practicing some form of reduced or no till seeding in their operations. Western Canadian grain farmers are actually net positive for carbon emissions.
