From 2012 to 2016, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) funded Fertilizer Canada’s project “Utilizing 4R Nutrient Stewardship to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the application of fertilizer and other Crop Nutrients” under the Agricultural Greenhouse Gases Program (AGGP), delivering research and extension of 4R Nutrient Stewardship as a framework to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
The Canadian 4R Research Network, a group of nine leading Canadian researchers, are collecting agronomic data which demonstrates the benefits of 4R Nutrient Stewardship to improve farmer economics, feeding the world, and protecting the environment. The findings are a result of $1.1 million in funding towards the Fertilizer Canada’s (formerly the Canadian Fertilizer Institute’s) project […]
The agriculture sector contributes 30% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. That makes it the largest contributor of non-carbon dioxide greenhouse gas (GHG) on the planet. The Nitrous Oxide Emission Reduction Protocol (or NERP) has the potential to change that.
