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.
