The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is updating its fertilizer regulations and, for farmers, that will mean a move to a more ‘buyer beware’ marketplace, says a spokesman for Grain Farmers of Ontario.
John Cowan, vice-president of strategic development, says the ingredients on fertilizers will still be labelled. But it will come down to “a farmer having a relationship with his supplier and a trust level.”
