Farmers Need Fertilizer Report
The report outlines the complexity of global fertilizer supply, demand, and price, and shows how Canada’s tariff on fertilizer has an impact for farmers in Ontario. Improved trucking capacity, more competitive west to east rail rates, increased west coast port capacity for imports, and better risk management tools – including a way to keep farmers competitive like a Fertilizer Affordability Index – are all ideas explored within the report.
