Nutrient Stewardship

Research Report Ontario Release

A new report published by Fertilizer Canada, Key Findings of the Canadian 4R Research Network, highlights 10 scientifically-proven 4R Nutrient Stewardship Best Management Practices (BMPs) across a range of cropping systems from Atlantic Canada through to the Prairies amply demonstrating the universality of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship approach.

Key Findings of the Canadian 4R Research Network

The purpose of this report is to present the findings of the Canadian 4R Research Network (also referred to as the ‘4R Research Network’). After a three-year independent research project engaging nine researchers across the country, the 4R Research Network has provided much needed scientific evidence to support the efficacy of the BMPs associated with […]

Greenhouse Gas Reduction

From 2012 to 2016, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) funded Fertilizer Canada’s project “Utilizing 4R Nutrient Stewardship to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the application of fertilizer and other Crop Nutrients” under the Agricultural Greenhouse Gases Program (AGGP), delivering research and extension of 4R Nutrient Stewardship as a framework to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.

Canadian 4R Research Network

The Canadian 4R Research Network, a group of nine leading Canadian researchers, are collecting agronomic data which demonstrates the benefits of 4R Nutrient Stewardship to improve farmer economics, feeding the world, and protecting the environment.  The findings are a result of $1.1 million in funding towards the Fertilizer Canada’s (formerly the Canadian Fertilizer Institute’s) project […]
