These farmers and their retail partners use the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship to increase soil and crop productivity and health, enhance ROI, and strengthen the sustainability of their farms. The 2018 4R Advocates showcase the reality that 4R Nutrient Stewardship principles are effective in any farming situation. They’ve proven the efficacy of using the right source of fertilizer at the right rate, at the right time, and in the right place in citrus, corn, hops, rice, soybeans, and other crops. In doing so, they’ve reaped the rewards of more robust crops, improved soil health, and created better farming environments in their communities.
While this is the most diverse group of 4R Advocates to date, they all farm with the common spirit of producing crops sustainably and making their farms better each year guided by sound science, including the 4R Nutrient Stewardship practices. Enjoy getting to know them.
