Was your crop given the right source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place? Learn best management practices from the 4R Nutrient Stewardship initiative.

According to a survey conducted by The Fertilizer Institute, 70 percent of farmers surveyed had not heard or had limited knowledge about the 4R Nutrient Stewardship initiative. As farmers look to industry experts, such as retailers and agronomists, for reliable information on nutrient management, it’s an opportunity to share the benefits of implementing the 4R Nutrient Stewardship program.

 

In collaboration with The Fertilizer Institute, International Plant Nutrition Institute, Fertilizer Canada and International Fertilizer Association, the program is designed to give growers a framework to effectively manage their fertilizer inputs. By selecting the right source of fertilizer, applying it at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place, a grower is implementing best management practices.

By posing the statement above as a question, “Was the crop given the right source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place?” growers can optimize their nutrient management practices, minimize potential impact on the environment, improve fertilizer efficiency and have the potential for higher yields—overall increasing farm net income.
