The 4R Technology Review field days, sponsored by The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), The Mosaic Company, Environmental Tillage Systems (ETS) and the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Council, offer attendees exclusive access to experts, information and tools to grow farm sustainability through 4R nutrient stewardship practices.
“4R Technology Reviews are great opportunities to hear the latest information on maximizing crop uptake of nutrients, while minimizing nutrient loss to achieve long-term benefits,” says Lara Moody, TFI vice president of stewardship and sustainability.
