Advancing Sustainable Agriculture in Ontario
CFFO has been working with Fertilizer Canada and other partners to bring 4R Nutrient Stewardship to Ontario. The 4R Nutrient Stewardship program promotes the four pillars of fertilizer application: Right Source at the Right Rate, Right Time and Right Place.
In 2018, we joined partnering organizations in a three-year commitment to promote 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification in Ontario. 4R Certification equips agri-retailers to help their farming customers implement 4R Nutrient Stewardship on their farms.
4R Nutrient Stewardship is a win-win for farmers: They can reduce nutrient losses into the environment while also improving their profitability, thanks to more efficient fertilizer applications.
