In February, we had the pleasure of sharing the 4R nutrient stewardship message with growers, media and agribusiness professionals at the 2014 Commodity Classic. Set in beautiful San Antonio on the famous River Walk, the Classic is one of that nation’s largest agricultural trade shows, focused and led by growers of corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum. The 2014 Classic had record attendance of more than 7,300 people.
We had a great presence at the show and were able to connect directly with growers about The Fertilizer Institute’s (TFI) role in promoting nutrient stewardship practices and advocating for the strength of the fertilizer industry. We engaged with growers regarding 4R nutrient stewardship: using the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place. Assisting us in spreading the word were our 4R Advocate Award winners, growers who were nominated by their retailers for their standout efforts toward nutrient stewardship.
