I think moldboard fall plowing should be outlawed in P.E.I., effective immediately.
Moldboard plowing is the conventional tow behind plowing that leaves molded furrows behind the plow as it goes burying all residues and leaving only bare soil exposed.
There are types of conservation fall plowing that some farmers are doing that will be acceptable.
P.E.I. is losing its topsoil that it cannot afford to lose. The rivers and bays are full of silt from soil erosion. The fisheries in the rivers and bays are being ruined. This must be stopped.
We are having snowless winters and dust bowl soil erosion conditions because there is too much totally exposed topsoil.
Every year excuses are made but no actions are taken.
It is time for the provincial government to take action. Ban fall moldboard plowing.
