Fertilizer is food for plants and imperative for growing healthy food for Canadians. Without fertilizer, global food production would be approximately half of current levels. To feed the projected global population in 2050, we will need to increase food production by approximately 70 percent. The world relies on the safe and responsible distribution and use of fertilizer products to meet this demand.

Fertilizer Canada promotes the safe and secure manufacturing, handling, storage, transportation, and application of commercial fertilizers. The Canadian fertilizer industry is widely viewed as a world leader in fertilizer safety, with industry-leading, world-class Codes of Practice.
