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.

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.

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.
