5 April 2016

In Canada, one of the largest agricultural producers and exporters in the world, our Polysulphate standard grade is now listed for use in organic production, processing, and handling.

Polysulphate, the trade name for polhalite fertilizer, is listed in the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) Canada Products List
This news that Canadian farmers have a new tool in their organic farming tool kit comes soon after Polysulphate standard grade was welcomed for organic farming in the United States. Our product is listed in the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) Canada Products List©, available on the OMRI website.

Smart inputs for smarter farming
“Modern agriculture is based on innovative, sustainable and competitive farming practices” says the Canadian government’s Agriculture and AgriFood Canada (AAFC) that works with farmers and food producers to support the growth and development of the agriculture and agri-food sector

The considered choice and careful use of inputs such as our Polysulphate fertilizer, which provides the perfect balance of crop nutrients plant growth requires, is clearly one part of sustainable and competitive farming.
