45-Day Public Consultation Period for the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Standards Manual

Requirements for 4R Certification of Nutrient Service Providers in Prince Edward Island

4R Nutrient Stewardship best management practices (BMPs) must be customized to fit each farm’s unique climatic, soil, cropping and operational conditions. This is achieved, as needed, with professional input from recognized and qualified specialists such as Certified Crop Advisors who work with farmers to assess their specific farming operation and develop 4R Nutrient Management plans.

Fertilizer Canada is committed to increasing agricultural productivity while also helping to improve Prince Edward Island’s (PEI) water quality and environment. and will continue to work with the fertilizer industry to uphold the standards that are intended to support the adoption of 4R Nutrient Stewardship. The 4R Certification program will help the fertilizer industry increase the adoption and implementation of 4R Nutrient Stewardship on PEI farms. As a Fertilizer Canada member and/or stakeholder, your feedback is important to us. Any comments or feedback are to be submitted in writing to McKenzie Smith, Director of Nutrient Stewardship at Fertilizer Canada. The 45-day consultation period begun Monday July 15th with a submission deadline of August 31, 2019.
