4R Designation – Offering Sustainable Solutions
Sustainable farming is the future. In many cases, that future is already underway. 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place ®) lets the world know when food has been sustainably grown.
We want to demonstrate this to the world, by getting Canadian agri-retailers and crop advisors 4R Designated and counting millions of acres under 4R Nutrient Stewardship, to demonstrate how Canada is a leader in sustainable farming.
Getting started is simple. Fertilizer Canada’s 4R Nutrient Stewardship three-part training takes an in-depth look at sustainable fertilizer principles, which earns a Certified Crop Advisers 5.5 continuing education credits.
