4R Nutrient Stewardship

When you visit your local Richardson Pioneer Ag Business Centre, our sales and agronomy experts will assess your nutrient needs and make product recommendations using the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Approach. This approach stands for:

  1. Right source – matching the fertilizer type to crop needs
  2. Right rate – matching the amount of fertilizer to crop needs
  3. Right time – making nutrients available when crops need them
  4. Right place – keeping nutrients where crops can use them

The 4R Nutrient Stewardship requires the use of best management practices, which involves matching nutrient supply with crop requirements to minimize nutrient losses from fields.

The stewardship can be applied to help manage your crop nutrients, including organic sources and fertilizers.

The 4R Nutrient Stewardship is backed by research conducted by agronomic scientists using performance indicators chosen by the stakeholders in crop production systems.

Visit your local Richardson Pioneer Ag Business Centre today for recommendations on how to apply the 4R Nutrient Stewardship approach to your farm business.
