It is an estimate of the degree to which crop production agriculture may contribute to surface or groundwater contamination.Agriculture production that makes greater use of herbicides, insecticides and pesticides in generally considered more intensive. Presenting the relative farm chemical expenses by SLC polygons reveals where the most intensive agricultural production in the province occurs. Chemical use is part of an equation to determine a measure of surface water quality risk. If an area is known to have certain risk factors that would affect not only surface, but groundwater quality as well, a higher chemical expense index ranking in that same area may be of concern. Where risks of surface or groundwater contamination exist, environmental farm planning can help to minimize them. purpose: To estimate of the degree to which crop production agriculture may contribute to surface or groundwater contamination. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: asNeeded descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Alberta type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: water quality keyword: groundwater pollution keyword: soil contamination keyword: pesticide type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: license otherConstraints: Your use of this information will be governed by the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, in force as of the date you accessed the information , found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: accessConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions otherConstraints: To access the data you must agree to the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useLimitation: Distribution Liability: Under the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, the Information is licensed as is, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

That amount was divided by the SLC area (square km) to result in a ratio of the amount spent on farm chemicals per unit area for each SLC.
                  
SLC Version 1.9 was used for this map. SLC polygons were created using existing soil survey information. Each polygon is described by a standard set of soil and land attributes that characterizes the soil landscapes found in each SLC polygon. Soils, landscapes and climate are the key natural resource factors that determine agricultural productivity, and the farms within a soil landscape unit usually have similar production characteristics.
                  
The values for each SLC were ranked with the lowest value assigned a new value of 0.0 and the SLC with the maximum ratio assigned a new value of 1.0. All other values were assigned a new value between 0.0 and 1.0 based on their rank order.. dateTime: 2002-01-01T00:00:00 source: LI_Source: description: Census of Agriculture data related to the amount spent on chemicals (herbicides, insecticides and fungicides totalled together) by producers. sourceCitation: CI_Citation: title: 2001 Census of Agriculture date: CI_Date: date: 2014-03-24 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: revision citedResponsibleParty: missing source: LI_Source: description: A series of GIS coverages that show the major charcteristics of soil and land for Canada. sourceCitation: CI_Citation: title: Soil Landscapes of Canada date: CI_Date: date: 1991-01-01 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: publication citedResponsibleParty: missing metadataMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: notPlanned
