4R Nutrient Stewardship on Prince Edward Island

Fertilizer Canada and the province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) are committed to delivering sustainable solutions for local growers. A three year extension to an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed by Fertilizer Canada, the Government of PEI, the PEI Federation of Agriculture, the PEI Potato Board and the Kensington North Watersheds Association, which continues the progress of sustainable agriculture practices for local growers through the 4R Nutrient Stewardship framework. 4R Nutrient Stewardship is a world-leading, Canadian-made program that allows producers to grow more food using existing farmland and ensures the protection of environmental resources. The framework – which encourages growers to use the right source of fertilizer at the right rate, right time and in the right place – has the capacity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and losses to water bodies. Fertilizer retailers and growers across Canada have adopted this framework to achieve efficiency while maintaining our soil, air and water.
