Preserving Our Soil

Protecting our crop health and ensuring a sustainable future

WHAT IS THE ISSUE?

Ontario's grain farmers are committed to preserving biodiversity in the soil and waterways where they farm through nutrient management programs including the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Strategy.

We are asking the government to recognize 4R as the solution to achieving their 30% emissions reduction goal. 4R aims to help farmers effectively use fertilizers to increase crop health while ensuring the sustainable future of an agriculture industry that works tirelessly to improve soil health, decrease environmental pollution and protect wildlife.

The 4Rs:

  1. RIGHT SOURCE – Matches fertilizer type to crop needs
  2. RIGHT RATE – Matches amount of fertilizer and the type of crop needs
  3. RIGHT TIME – Makes nutrients available when the crops need them
  4. RIGHT PLACE – Keep nutrients where crops can use them
