CAAR 2020 and Beyond

CAAR has completed year one of its long-term strategic plan, developed in fall 2018 to guide the association’s focus and direction. As we prepare to embark on the next phase of our long-term strategy, we also enter a new decade of supporting agri-retailers influencing world class food production.

A Circular Solution

Closing the loop on nutrient use is becoming a common conversation in the fertilizer sector.

To help meet the future food demands of a growing population, the fertilizer industry is starting to look more seriously at closing the loop on nutrient use.

CAAR's Year in Review

Focusing on strategic objectives drove the association forward in 2019. 

By all accounts, 2019 was a trying year for Canadian agriculture. Between trade barriers, extreme weather and drought, and a seemingly endless harvest, no one along the value chain was immune from adversity. Though it was difficult to see the industry struggle, Mitch Rezansoff, CAAR’s executive director, says that the industry’s collective strength was also on display.

Making Canada's Fertilizer Industry Safer Through our World-Class Codes of Practice

SPONSORED BY FERTILIZER CANADA: Over the years, Fertilizer Canada has developed world-class safety and security programs through eLearning and Codes of Practice to complement the safety initiatives of our members. Safety is the number one priority of the fertilizer industry. Our members work to ensure that every day their employees and facilities meet stringent requirements for a safe workplace as they work to make products which help feed the world. This commitment is upheld beyond the boundaries of their sites as they work with first responders to ensure the safety of their communities and educate their customers on proper use of the product.

Ensuring Soil Health to Feed the World

SPONSORED BY FERTILIZER CANADA: Fertilizer is one of nature’s most complex and beneficial resources, as it allows soil to become more productive and yield better crops. Without it, we simply couldn’t produce enough corn, wheat, rice, or other crops needed to feed the world’s population. Faced with a growing global population, less arable land, and environmentally-conscious consumers, farmers are looking for ways to grow more crops on the same land while protecting the environment. It’s a tall order to be sure, but farmers are up to the challenge.
