Farmer and Retailer to Lead Session During The Fertilizer Institute”s 4R Summit

“I’ve used the 4Rs since the 1990s,” Connors said. “I look for ways to be proactive, to behave responsibly for the environment and social good and provide a sustainable operation that my family can farm for generations to come.”

The two-day event features educational sessions to learn how the 4Rs help with day-to-day crop production practices. Attendees can also take in how the science of 4Rs fits in soil health improvement plans, nutrient management, water quality management and conservation plans.

Presenters include: Chase Koch, Koch Agronomic Services; Marty Adkins, Steve Davis, Mark Smith, and Norm Widman, National Resources Conservation Service; Matt Helmers, Iowa State University; Ton Vyn, Purdue University; Nathan Nelson, Kansas State University; Wayne Honeycutt, Soil Health Institute and Scott Murrell, International Plant Nutrition Institute.

“The 4R Summit is an event where growers and agribusiness personnel can share success stories and see how proven environmental stewardship enhances food production practices,” said Chris Jahn, TFI President. “Growers, retailers and others who attend will be excited about the innovative ideas shared.”
