Backers provide three-year funding for 4R

The organizations that fund the 4R nutrient management program have renewed funding to continue it for another three years.

The renewal of the partnership among Fertilizer Canada, Grain Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Agri Business Association, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario “ensures the continued advancement of sustainable agriculture in Ontario,” said a statement from the organizations.

A total of $382,500 over three years is being invested towards Fertilizer Canada’s 4R Certification program for agri-retailers in Ontario. 

The organizations say they want to provide Ontario’s producers with solutions to the increased pressure of reducing their environmental impact.
