The 4R planning workshop will provide participants with:

  • Tailored 4R agronomic advice
  • Access to experts (i.e. Dr. Tom Bruulsema) to assist with 4R planning and setting goals for your or your client's operations
  • Allow producers and CCAs to provide feedback on the 4R planning approach (Your Farm, Your Plan, Your Opinion Matters)


Documentation Requirements for the Workshop:

  1. Overall information: field size (acres), location, soil type, topography etc.
  2. Previous years on farm crops grown, yield and quality, fertilizer source, rate, time and place
  3. Map of operation or field
  4. Most recent soil analysis test results
  5. Most recent manure analysis test results
  6. Crop Nutrient Requirements (we can provide the guidelines from OMAFRA in the binders)

Designing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan:

The objective of the workshop is to provide producers (in association with their crop advisors if desired) with practical and expert instruction on developing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan. The core of the 4R nutrient management system is applying the right source of fertilizer @ the right rate, the right time, and the right place. Further, 4R nutrient stewardship is based on the principle of adaptive management and continuous improvement. So developing a 4R Nutrient Management Plan Worksheet is more than just a paper exercise, it's a living document that evolves over time and retains its value going forward. 

Agronomic experts will be on hand to assist with developing a 4R Nutrient Management plan tailored to your operations.
