Grow Ontario Together

Grain Farmers of Ontario is proud to be part of Grow Ontario Together, a collaboration of agriculture organizations that are currently working on phosphorus reduction in the Great Lakes. They recognize the need to work together — with each other, with the public, with environmentalists, with municipalities, concerned citizens and with governments. To reduce phosphorus, Grain Farmers of Ontario is working on:

  • 4R Nutrient Stewardship Strategy — ensures right source, right time, right place, and right amount of fertilizer
  • Soil management — field mapping and soil testing to make best nutrient management decisions
  • Cover Crops — reduces soil erosion and nutrient losses, while adding organic matter to soil
