Do you know the 4Rs of crop nutrient management? If you’re concerned nutrient management planning is synonymous with red tape and added costs, you may be surprised to learn that the 4Rs add to farmer profitability AND environmental stewardship.
The 4Rs — the right rate, right place, right form, and right time — of crop nutrient management isn’t a set of government rules. It’s well-researched and economic nutrient management advice to help improve crop production practices on your farm.
In this episode of the Growing Series podcast, Shaun Haney from RealAgriculture.com speaks with Leanne Freitag, Cargill’s regional agronomy leader for Ontario, about the 4Rs, water quality in the province, new regulations, and new training for certified crop advisors.
