“AgTalk – Peer-to-Peer Support Platform Launch”

AgTalk is a national peer-to-peer support platform powered by Togetherall and available to anyone 16+ who identifies as being part of the Canadian agricultural industry. AgTalk provides a safe and anonymous space for individuals to connect, share, support others and receive support from a community of peers who understand their unique experiences.

Monitored 24/7 by mental health clinicians, AgTalk provides a safe environment for open discussion on mental health in both English and French. Agriculture is an industry with a foundation of deep rural roots, hard work, resilience, strength and community. In order to uphold that image those traits can become barriers for speaking up and seeking help.

Recognizing these challenges, BASF, Royal Bank of Canada, and McCain Foundation have come together in partnership with Do More Ag to support the development of AgTalk, to better address the specific needs of individuals in agriculture.

Fertilizer Reduction Mandates,
A Global Farmers Perspective

Why is there still a need for fertilizer? In the European Union, as part of the Green Deal for a better environment, there has been set goals for reducing the use of fertilizer. Is there an alternative for it?

Farmers from around the world share their experiences with fertilizer and reduction mandates. Different policies, and political landscape from a global farmers perspective. What they see as the future for fertilizer, soil & plant knowledge, and how to keep adapting.

1:30 PM

Catherine King, VP Fertilizer Canada


Increasing the understanding of the fertilizer industry

Since late 2020 the fertilizer industry has become a topic of “mainstream” among influential Canadians. People are talking about fertilizer – from the Federal emission reduction target to food security. This causes both challenges, but also opportunities. What are some of the challenges that the industry has faced, how has the Association worked to increase knowledge of the fertilizer industry and where do we need to go from here?

Join Catherine as she gives an overview of the Fertilizer Canada, the policies the Association is working on and the communications opportunities ahead for the industry.
