On February 28, 2019, the Agricultural Waste Control Regulation was replaced by the Agricultural Environmental Management Code of Practice. This page is being updated to be consistent with the new regulation.
Nutrient management is about using nutrient sources (such as manure and fertilizers) to supply crops with the right amount, form, placement, and timing of nutrients to optimize crop growth and minimize risks to water and air quality.
Monitoring, planning, and adapting to change are essential steps in nutrient management – following this process can guide how much, when, where, and what forms of nutrients are needed.
