Event Description

PROJECT AND EVENT DETAILS

Protecting water quality is a vital issue for the 39 municipalities and 1 million residents in the Grand River Watershed. This region of Ontario also represents some of the province's most viable and productive farmland. Land use and water quality concerns are a shared priority. A new partnership of farmers, scientists, agri-business leaders, municipal leaders, and conservation experts are working together to bring innovative farming methods into practice - using Agri-INNOVATIONS by ClimateCHECK. Together, our efforts will help guide the growth of agriculture for the benefit of all watershed stakeholders.

Join regional leaders and crop advisers to learn how 4R Nutrient Stewardship will support on-farm Beneficial Management Practices. The 4R concept guides farmers in using the Right fertilizer source; at the Right rate; at the Right time; and in the Right place ©.

This project is supported by the Canadian Fertilizer Institute and the Ontario Centres of Excellence Social Innovation Program- Environment & Sustainability.

- Bruce Ringrose, VP Business Development, ClimateCHECK
