Cultivation intensity refers to the frequency of cultivation associated with the following management systems: no till, conventional tillage and summerfallow. It is an estimate of the degree to which cultivation contributes to wind and water erosion. The classes shown on the map are ranked between 0 (lowest) and 1 (highest).This map was created in 2002 using ArcGIS. purpose: To estimate the degree to which cultivation contributes to wind and water erosion. In general, more cultivation means a greater risk of wind and water erosion. However, the physical characteristics of the soil and landscape will have an influence on the sensitivity of the soil to cultivation. Having this information identifies areas with a high cultivation intensity index, which then can be assessed for soil characteristics that may make them susceptible to erosion. In these areas, promotion of beneficial management practices such as reduced tillage, direct seeding and reducing or eliminating summerfallow can be encouraged. status: MD_ProgressCode: completed resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: asNeeded descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Alberta type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: plant production keyword: soil degredation keyword: soil fertility keyword: harvesting frequency type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme thesaurusName: CI_Citation: title: Agrovoc date: CI_Date: date: 2016-01-21 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: revision citedResponsibleParty: missing 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.

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 cultivation rating is a measure of the cultivation intensity, with management system having a greater frequency of cultivation weighed higher. The cultivation ratio was calculated for each SLC by the following formula: Cultivation rating=(% are in no till)x1+(%area in conservation tillage)x2+(%area in conventional tillage)x3+(%area in summerfallow)x4. The cultivation rating for each SLC was converted to an index value between 0.0 and 1.0, where 0.0 referred to uncultivated land and 1.0 had the highest value of cultivation intensity. dateTime: 2002-01-01T00:00:00 source: LI_Source: description: Census questions provided an estimate of the area of no till, conservation tillage, conventional tillage and summerfallow on farms in Alberta. 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
