Accelerating Adoption of 4R Nutrient Practices
As one agricultural retailer commented, “Trade and business organizations need to be more proactive in promoting these concepts and ideas to the end users, and retailers.”
Earl J. Garber, president, National Association of Conservation Districts, said, “I am encouraged to see the results of our survey. We are both gatekeepers for private working lands in the areas of food production and the delivery of conservation. It is clear that both parties see the value of working together toward these mutual goals, and by doing so we can accomplish more for conservation.”
Jeff Sands, director of public policy, Agricultural Retailers Association, said, “The results of this survey are full of promise; they highlight common threads and identify opportunities for retailers and conservation districts to better serve their growers and the environment together. I look forward to seeing how the results of this survey will serve as a conduit to increasing these synergies in the future.”
