The annual 4R Summit, sponsored by The Fertilizer Institute, will be held in Cleveland, Ohio on June 10-11, 2019, to share effective nutrient stewardship tenets and practices. Attendees will hear from speakers about advances and tools for in-field implementation of the 4R principles, linkages between 4R and on-farm conservation, agribusiness involvement, government- and non-governmental organization-supported initiatives, and details on projects funded through the 4R Research Fund. The agenda will feature concurrent breakout sessions, offering participants a choice of speakers and topics. Approximately 10.5 CEUs will be available for participants.
With Ohio as the backdrop, TFI has worked with the Ohio Agribusiness Association to help set the summit agenda. The 4Rs have had a long history in Ohio, and the Summit will feature speakers from various partners across the state.
Attendees are in for a fun night at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a special evening reception.
Fertilizer is a component of sustainable crop production systems, and the fertilizer industry recognizes the need to efficiently utilize these nutrients. The 4R philosophy is an innovative and science-based approach that offers enhanced environmental protection, increased production, increased farmer profitability, and improved sustainability. The concept is to use the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time, with the right placement.
