The Holland Marsh is one of two "Specialty Crop Areas" in Ontario and a recognized producer of a significant percentage of the vegetables grown in the province. Despite the importance of the Marsh as a provincial agricultural resource, there is a lack of specific information about the agriculture that occurs there or the economic impact this activity has on the provincial economy. This report addresses this lack of information.

Funded by the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation, this report commences with a description of the land base of the Marsh. This is followed by a profile of agriculture in the Marsh, which then forms the basis for an economic analysis to calculate the financial contribution that primary production in the Marsh makes to the provincial economy annually. Finally the report addresses the issues, challenges and opportunities associated with production in the Marsh.
