Manitoba’s provincial restriction of the winter application of agriculture nutrients has now ended, fertilizer (including manure) may now be applied across the province. 

CAAR thanks the Government of Manitoba for giving multiple stakeholders the opportunity to give input on variance requirements ahead of the expiry of the annual restriction on April 10.

A conference call was hosted by Manitoba Sustainable Development on Wednesday April 3, 2019 to take input from multiple stakeholders on conditions across the province, at which time it was determined that no variance to the standard deadline would be required.

Application of nutrients will be permitted across the province throughout the growing season, until Nov. 10, 2019. Manitoba Sustainable Development may grant a variance to the November restriction – if conditions warrant an extension. Approaching this cut-off date, CAAR will once again work on behalf of its Manitoba members to assess the need for a variance and communicate the government’s decision to retailers.
