The 4R planning workshop will provide participants with:

  • Tailored 4R agronomic advice
  • Access to experts (i.e. Dr. Tom Bruulsema) to assist with 4R planning and setting goals for your or your client's operations
  • Allow producers and CCAs to provide feedback on the 4R planning approach (Your Farm, Your Plan, Your Opinion Matters)


Documentation Requirements for the Workshop:

  1. Overall information: field size (acres), location, soil type, topography etc.
  2. Previous years on farm crops grown, yield and quality, fertilizer source, rate, time and place
  3. Map of operation or field
  4. Most recent soil analysis test results
  5. Most recent manure analysis test results
  6. Crop Nutrient Requirements (we can provide the guidelines from OMAFRA in the binders)

Designing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan:

The objective of the workshop is to provide producers (in association with their crop advisors if desired) with practical and expert instruction on developing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan. The core of the 4R nutrient management system is applying the right source of fertilizer @ the right rate, the right time, and the right place. Further, 4R nutrient stewardship is based on the principle of adaptive management and continuous improvement. So developing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan Worksheet is more than just a paper exercise, it's a living document that evolves over time and retains its value going forward. 

Agronomic experts will be on hand to assist with developing a 4R Nutrient Management plan tailored to your operations.

How one company is reducing agricultural waste on Earth Day

As the world celebrates Earth Day on Monday, one agriculture organization is reflecting on the work it accomplished in 2023. According to a release from CleanFarms, a non-profit group that ensures farmers actively contribute to a healthy environment, the agriculture industry used many recycling and safe disposal programs for agricultural plastics and packaging last year, and there’s certainly an appetite for more solutions in the future. One example that CleanFarms offers is AgriRÉCUP in Quebec, which operated four permanent collection programs and two pilot programs in the province that captured pesticide and fertilizer containers, plastics for hay and silage protection and seed, and pesticide and fertilizer bags. “We’re thrilled to have seen so much expansion in our programs last year,” said Barry Friesen, executive director of Cleanfarms. “Earth Day encourages us to acknowledge the important work we get to do on behalf of our members, with farmers, first sellers, ag retailers, an

More incentive for grads to consider agriculture-focused vet career

On any given day, Prince Albert, SK veterinarian Peter Surkan sees roughly 40 patients, but for every patient he sees, there are dozens more waiting. To accommodate all of the clients in the area, Surkan said there needs to be more vets, especially in smaller, rural communities. His practice in Prince Albert only has three full and part-time veterinarians, compared to 10 vets a decade ago. On Friday, the province announced $13.2 million in funding to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) in 2024-25, representing a $667,000 increase over last year. The money will partially subsidize 25 training seats for Saskatchewan students. “We continue to see a rising demand for veterinary services in the province and they are a key support for our growing economy,” Advanced Education Minister Gordon Wyant said in a press release. “This is a priority investment for Advanced Education that supports the continued implementation with five new seats, bringing the total now to 25 seats, t

Squeal on Pigs Manitoba receives new Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership funding

Manitoba Pork, in partnership with the Government of Canada and the Province of Manitoba, and in collaboration with Manitoba’s agricultural sector, is pleased to announce that the Squeal on Pigs Manitoba initiative will receive over $2.6 million over the next four years to further the work of tracking and removing wild pigs from Manitoba’s landscape. “Wild pigs continue to thrive across Manitoba and are vectors for many diseases that have a devastating impact on both domestic pigs as well as other animals,” said Dr. Wayne Lees, project coordinator, Squeal on Pigs Manitoba. “Together with our partners in both the provincial and federal governments, as well as Manitoba’s agricultural sector and stakeholders across the province, this new funding will allow us to further our efforts to track, trap, and remove wild pigs from the landscape and protect our province.” The goal of the Squeal on Pigs campaign is to identify where wild pigs are in Manitoba, control their spread, and remove as m
