Agricultural Land Use Inventory - Regional District of Central Kootenay

Located in Lower Mainland - Fraser Valley
In the summer of 2016, the BC Ministry of Agriculture and its partners conducted an Agricultural Land Use Inventory (ALUI) in RDCK. The ALUI was funded by RDCK, the Columbia Basin Trust, and Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial territorial initiative. ALUIs can be used to understand the type and extent of agricultural activities within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The ALUI data quantifies how much land is currently used for agriculture, how much land is unavailable for agriculture, and how much land may have potential for agricultural expansion. The data provides baseline information that can be used to track trends in agricultural land use and to measure changes over time. The data also enables the estimation of agricultural water demand with the use of an irrigation water demand model.
