Ontario creates new Fertilizer Accelerating Solutions and Technology Challenge to support farmers

September 23, 2022  By The Government of Ontario

The Ontario government is investing up to $2 million over two years in the Fertilizer Accelerating Solutions & Technology Challenge. This funding will support made-in-Ontario solutions to increase the availability of fertilizer options, alternatives and technology, ensuring farmers have the tools they need so that Ontarians can rely on a safe and stable food supply.

Following consultations with farmers and the agri-food sector, Ontario is launching the challenge to address the ongoing supply chain challenges for fertilizer, while promoting innovation in the province’s agri-food sector. The Challenge is a competitive opportunity for agri-businesses and organizations that will focus on investing in projects, such as new solutions like biofertilizers, that can help reduce dependency on imported products.
