We are pleased to announce that the 2017 4R Summit will be held June 12-13, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minn. The 4R Summit will be held at the Radisson Blu in downtown Minneapolis, and a block of rooms will be available at a group rate. Registration and hotel reservation information will be available in spring 2017 on www.nutrientstewardship.org as well as the TFI website.
The Summit provides opportunities for those interested in nutrient management and stewardship to learn more about the 4R Nutrient Stewardship program and hear how stakeholders across the country are implementing the 4R principles.
Attendees will hear from speakers about in-field implementation of the 4R principles, 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.
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.
Further details on the 2017 4R Summit will be provided in early 2017.
