It’s easier than ever to make 4R Nutrient Stewardship a part of conversations with your grower customers by using Fertilizer Canada’s 4R Toolkit, including province-specific resources to guide conversations with your growers.

CAAR members are leading the way in sustainability and stewardship. By helping your customers incorporate the principles of nutrient stewardship into their operation and count their acres under the 4R framework, your company is helping to demonstrate this leadership to the public.

Fertilizer Canada provides all of the resources your company needs to get set up for stewardship in their recently-launched 4R Toolkit. Recognizing that effective nutrient stewardship must have a regional focus, the toolkit includes province-specific templates with information on how 4R can be implemented to protect water and soil quality in that province.

Use these resources to start and guide conversations with your growers customers to help them kickstart 4R on their farms. Get started with 4R today to demonstrate your commitment to nutrient stewardship and show the world that Canadian ag retailers are doing their part to protect the land for future generations.
