Nutrient application ban on now

Manitoba Sustainable Development advises the winter nutrient application ban began at midnight on November 21. It will continue until midnight on April 10 – unless the government deems that spring soil conditions permit earlier application. If this is the case, KAP will notify producers.
 
The winter nutrient application ban applies to all forms of nutrients including livestock manure and inorganic fertilizer.
 
Producers requesting authorization to apply manure due to an emergency situation or other extenuating circumstance after today can email the Environmental Approvals Branch. Or call (204) 391-0540 or (204) 945-3078.
