Ohio Farm Bureau is a sponsor of the 2019 4R Summit, sponsored by The Fertilizer Institute. The meeting will share effective nutrient stewardship tenets and practices. Attendees will hear from speakers about advances and tools for in-field implementation of the 4R principles, linkages between 4R and on-farm conservation, agribusiness involvement, government- and non-governmental organization-supported initiatives, and details on projects funded through the 4R Research Fund. The agenda will feature concurrent breakout sessions, offering participants a choice of speakers and topics. Approximately 10.5 CEUs will be available for participants.
Fertilizer is a component of sustainable crop production systems, and the fertilizer industry recognizes the need to efficiently utilize these nutrients. The 4R philosophy is an innovative and science-based approach that offers enhanced environmental protection, increased production, increased farmer profitability, and improved sustainability. The concept is to use the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time, with the right placement.
The meeting in Cleveland will dive into 4R fertilizer best management practices that make sense for farmers and the environment.
