Agrium, Inc.

This partner can help with the Right Place, Right Rate, Right Source, Right Time,

Agrium’s strategy is to grow across the value chain through acquisition, incremental expansion of its existing operations and through the development, commercialization and marketing of new products and international opportunities. Our strategy places particular emphasis on growth opportunities that both increase and stabilize our earnings profile in the continuing transformation of Agrium.

The 4R nutrient stewardship system provides stakeholders with a science based approach to nutrient management that will help growers improve their economic performance, while increasing food production and reducing environmental impacts. It also works well with our belief that nutrient plans must be customized to each region to be effective, and that one approach for all does not work for the growers.

Through this system we can also work with growers, universities, government and other stakeholders to identify new tools and techniques to improve sustainability.

We are working on several fronts to support the 4R effort. With our industry association partners and universities, we are developing implementation materials and regionally specific best management practices. With growers we support their efforts to develop 4R nutrient management plans and provide products that support their economic, social and environmental goals. Finally, we are working with government and other stakeholders to implement the 4R system globally by building partnerships and programs that support this effort.
