4R Nutrient Stewardship e-learning Opportunities

The 4R's - right rate, right time, right source and right place - of Nutrient Stewardship has been receiving lots of attention in the farm press. It was also featured at this year's Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention in a 4R Nutrient Stewardship for Vegetable Crops session.

Amanda Giamberardino, manager for Fertilizer Canada's 4R Nutrient Stewardship Program, spoke at the session. She highlighted the e-learning opportunities available through the Fertilizer Canada website.

The Fertilizer Canada's 4R Nutrient Stewardship Training is divided into three parts and takes an in-depth look at the principles, practices and planning required in developing and implementing a 4R Nutrient Stewardship plan.

This on-line training is for both growers and crop advisors looking to improve their understanding of 4R's and incorporating them into their production systems. Certified Crop Advisors can receive Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) by completing the quizzes at the end of each section.

The Fertilizer Canada 4R Nutrient Stewardship e-learning is available online.
