The Right Approach to Climate Smart Agriculture

Canada, led by the province of Alberta, is implementing climate-smart agriculture by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fertilizer use in crop production.

At least one million acres of farmland in Alberta are operating under 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place®), focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 15 to 25 percent. These are farms that are not only adopting climate-smart practices but keeping records to verify and estimate the emission reductions.

Leading agronomy companies such as Agritrend and Farmers Edge have been working with Fertilizer Canada and the Government of Alberta to assist their farmer clients to apply their fertilizer more efficiently so they can improve profits and sell offsets in the Alberta greenhouse gas regulatory system.
