Implementing 4Rs on YOUR Farm

4R Nutrient Stewardship is a system that helps you organize your decisions about nutrients by focusing on what’s important; the Right Source at the Right Rate, Time and Place.  A 4R Plan has 5 steps that help you to look at what you are currently doing and areas you could improve nutrient source rate time and place practices.  You don’t have to implement all practice changes you identify at once or get to your “best” management all in one year.  4R is a continuous process that you can work into over several seasons.
