SPG has collaborated with a number of like-minded associations to provide important feedback on behalf of growers and the agriculture industry to Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) Fertilizer Emissions Reduction Target Consultation.
The consultation was launched by AAFC to help guide the development of an approach for achieving Canada’s fertilizer emissions reduction target, to build a path forward for reducing emissions from the application of fertilizers by 30% from 2020 levels by 2030, with feedback being accepted until August 31, 2022.
SPG worked with SaskCrops groups (SPG, SaskCanola, SaskWheat, SaskFlax, SaskBarley, SaskOats) and the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS), as well as with national groups like Pulse Canada and Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) on collaborative submissions. Submissions outlined recommendations and feedback related to ensuring producers have access to technology to keep them profitable and productive and to also meet previously set production, economic, and food security targets simultaneously endorsed by governments.
