Our Focus Stewardship 4R’s Across Canada

Saskatchewan

4R Nutrient Stewardship has been promoted and applied across Canada through a number of provincial and regional programs and initiatives.

Saskatchewan represents more than 37.1 million acres of cropland in Canada. The province will play a significant part in making a tangible contribution toward sustainable farming in Canada

In November 2016, the Government of Saskatchewan and Fertilizer Canada signed a Memorandum of Cooperation agreeing to work together on the ongoing implementation and adoption of fertilizer application practices using 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place ®).

The alliance strengthens existing environmental stewardship by helping farmers to adopt science-based fertilizer application practices using 4R Nutrient Stewardship. This partnership will create awareness programs, enable collaboration with farmers in the province and implement communication strategies on sustainable best management practices, 4R Demonstration farms, and web-based training materials.

Saskatchewan has long promoted 4R Nutrient Stewardship and many farmers have adopted it as best practice. This agreement will further that work, contributing to greater on-farm sustainability and environmental stewardship in Saskatchewan. Healthy soil and crop nutrition are essential to crop production in Saskatchewan. The application of fertilizer using the 4R Nutrient Stewardship will help farmers continue to improve efficiency and grow more food.
