Fertilizer bans lead to food shortages

Canadian Trudeau proposes reducing fertilizers with the globalist goal of achieving zero emissions by 2030. Every indicator says that food shortages are on the rise, yet politicians continually make agriculture more difficult. Trudeau’s plan calls for a 30% reduction in fertilizer and is a direct threat to the food supply.

fertilizer Canada believes this plan will begin to damage agriculture as early as 2023. The agency believes Canada could lose more than 160 million tons of spring wheat, canola and maize between 2023 and 2030 alone. Alberta, Nate Horner, said the world is looking to Canada to increase food production amid scarcity and that the government is doing far more harm than good with this ban. “The world is looking for Canada to increase production and be a solution to the global food shortage. The federal government has to prove that it understands this. They owe it to our producers, “he said.

Who else has banned fertilizers and how did it go? Let’s watch Sri Lanka, which is currently in ruins. Disgraced former president Gotabaya Rajapaksa vowed to move on “organic cultivation. In April 2022, the government banned synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and forced two million farmers to switch to organic farming. The plan failed and the recession was rapid. Rice production dropped by 20% in six months and continued to decline until the nation began importing rice for the first time in recent history.

The Rajapaksa administration knew it was in serious trouble by 2021 and sought to offer incentives to farmers for the losses incurred. Now, over 86% of the Sri Lankan population has food problems. Countries seeking to ban or reduce fertilizers need to realize that the result will lead to less food. Should we let people starve to “save” the environment?
