The Christian County Farmers Supply Company and the Christian County Farm Bureau have partnered up to demonstrate and investigate 4R nutrient stewardship practices. Mark Bauman, General Manager of the Christian County FS said what the 4R field demonstration program is designed to do.
The 4R approach involves using the right amount of product in the right place, at the right time. Bauman explained some of the benefits of the 4R approach, and explained how the trial program is intending to demonstrate these benefits.
The trials will also monitor nitrogen utilization by the crop, as well as nitrogen movement in the soil.
