SVAECP - Soil Variability Analysis to Enhance Crop Production
The Soil Variability Analysis to Enhance Crop Production (SVAECP) Project is
developing an Internet-based, decision-information system to assist agricultural
retailers, consultants, producers, and researchers with management of soil
variability throughout the agricultural portion of Alberta.
The system is based on the premise that variability in soil
properties and crop production correlates with slope position.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (Research Branch, Western Region) initiated
the Prairie Agriculture Research Initiative, or PARI, in 1992 with a
focus on sustainable agriculture. Today, with the same focus,
the PARI Decision Support System (DSS) consists of a computer program on
CD-ROM called Farm Smart 2000.
Farm Smart 2000 is a WindowsTM based farm and crop management computer
program providing support to producers and extension crop specialists for a broad
range of crop production decisions in conservation and conventional cropping
