The objectives of the Management of Agricultural Wastes in the Fraser Valley program are to evaluate, within the Lower Fraser Valley, the production, treatment and disposal of agricultural wastes, and then to utilize this information in developing strategies for improving nutrient (manure and inorganic fertilizer) management. The first project in this program was to develop an inventory, based on the 1991 Census of Agriculture, of the agricultural land base, livestock and poultry and commercial fertilizer use in the Lower Fraser (Brisbin,1994; Brisbin,1996).The subject of this report is a general discussion of the environmental impacts of agricultural nutrients and the pathways along which these nutrients flow.
