Conservation Value is determined by distance from these important sites
Very High: 1 No significant limitations ; wide range of crops possible; not found in the Deh Cho .
High: 2 Moderate limitations; restricted range of crops; some conservation practices required; moderate to high productivity; found in the Liard Valley.
Moderate: 3 & 4 Moderate to severe limitations ; reduced choice of crops; special conservation practices required; high risk of crop failure; found throughout the upper Mackenzie River and Liard River valleys.
Low: 5 - 6 Unsuitable for annual field crops; only grasses, legumes, or perennial forage plants; limited improvements possible; some natural grazing capacity; limitations too severe for other crops; scattered throughout the upper Mackenzie River and Liard River valleys.
No Potential: 7 Organic soils and unmapped areas.
(Day. J.H. 1966-8.).
Distance From Existing Power Grid
Within 5 km Agricultural potential rankings were not changed
5 – 10 km Downgraded one rank to account for additional costs which might prevent some potential areas from being developed (i.e. if the area was ranked moderate based on agricultural potential, it would be downgraded to low). We did not downgrade low potential areas as they are already at the lowest class.
10 – 20 kmDowngraded 2 ranks. Again, we did not downgrade past low so both high and moderate agriculture classes would now be ranked as low.
>20 km Considered to have no potential
