Fertilizer Use Surveys for Sunflower, Corn, Flax, Wheat & Barley

  • Start date: 2021
  • Project Length: 2 Years
  • Project Status: In Progress

Background

Benefits to MB Producers: Fertilizer Use Survey provides a credible information source of current fertilizer practices and trends, as well as adoption of 4R Nutrient Stewardship as it relates to crop type, region, soil practices, farm size, etc. Additionally, the survey offers a comparison of practices against target and actual yields and science-based practices shown to reduce environmental impacts which provides the potential to compare adoption of 4R Nutrient Stewardship with both crop performance and environmental stewardship.

Objectives:
  • Objective: To fill the gap of publicly available data for commercial fertilizer use and management practices. The survey is helping us understand the current state of fertilizer management in Canadian crop production and assess grower adoption of 4R Nutrient Stewardship - Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place®.
