Stewards of the land... we’re with you.

Western Canadian growers have been finding new and better ways to work their land long before ‘sustainability’ became a catchphrase. At CPS, we believe it’s our job to provide the tools, products, services and support that growers need in their quest to produce higher yields with reduced environmental impacts. As the leading provider of agricultural inputs and services across Western Canada, CPS is dedicated to supplying the grower with the innovation, technology and expertise they need to get the job done – delivering locally, backed globally.

4R Nutrient Stewardship

As leaders in agricultural sustainability, we demonstrate our commitment to the grower every single day. It starts with our support of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship system. Based on employing best practices derived from the best available science, the 4R’s focus on applying the right source of nutrients at the right rate, right place and right time. The 4R system also encourages providing site-specific recommendations that address local soil, climate and operational practices, and the importance of keeping clear documentation of the nutrient plan and its implementation.

This overall system approach helps to minimize nutrient loss to the air and water, replenish and protect soil quality, while still providing growers with the economic return on investment required to support their families and build vibrant communities. Adoption of the 4R system is helping Western Canadian growers do more with less while supplying a growing world population with high-quality, nutritious food. 

The way forward...together

The adoption of exciting new technologies in combination with the application of farm-specific nutrient plans is allowing us to produce more food. It means healthier, more productive soil for today and tomorrow. Western Canadian crop growers are leading the way in sustainable agriculture. Putting nutrients where they can do the most good and realize the best return on investment – while reducing impacts on our air, water and land.

At CPS, we see growers as the original stewards of the land. And we’re with you every step of the way.
