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. This paper looks at the land base and agricultural profile of the Marsh, which then forms an economic analysis to calculate the financial contribution that primary production in the Marsh makes to the provincial economy annually. [The tenth installment in the Occasional Paper Series presented by the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation.]
