Response to Agricultural Institute of Canada

Fertilizer Canada supports the need to have a modern agricultural research policy that leads innovation and sustainability in Canada. Canada’s fertilizer industry is science-based and is committed to research and innovation to ensure environmental stewardship when fertilizer products are being used.
Sustainability can be achieved by balancing the economic, social and environmental goals of our stakeholders, including farm groups, homeowners, researchers, conservationists, governments, industry members and communities. Fertilizer Canada promotes the adoption and implementation of 4R Nutrient Stewardship, an internationally recognized system with four key pillars for fertilizer application: Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place®. This science-based approach helps farmers understand how efficient fertilizer application improves profitability while reducing nutrient losses into the environment.
