Soils, Agriculture and Sustainable Development: Nationally, Provincially, Locally. Environments read online review & book description:

Sustainability of soils and agriculture is not easily achieved. While much research has been conducted to increase soil productivity much less has been done to maintain or improve the environment, to sustain cultural heritage, or to ensure that the management of the land would continue to provide people with a future income. Perhaps this greater interest in the physical characteristics of the land and their impact on land management was somewhat influenced by history and the demands of the market place. At the turn-of-the-century, concern for the conservation of natural resources was of international interest. In 1909, the Canadian government established the Commission of Conservation to deal with resource conservation, wise rural land use and public health. It's six main committees on forestry, land, fish and wildlife, water, minerals and fuels provided the one and only integrated approach to resource planning that Canada has ever had. In agriculture, the Commission was responsible for the establishment of "illustration farms" which were meant to show the benefits of scientific farming. These farms, or "stations", as they became known, outlasted the 12 year life of the Commission by almost 40 years.
