Topic: The 4 R’s for Nutrient Stewardship
Learn how to adopt farm practices that protect the environment while optimizing productivity. Fahrmeier, who earned The Fertilizer Institute’s 4R Advocate stewardship honor in 2016, will talk about his work to select the right nutrient sources for his crops, and applying them at the right rate, at the right place, at the right time. Fahrmeier soil samples by management zone, which reduces the guesswork of nutrient application on his farm in western Missouri.
Fahrmeier has 2,300 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat and pasture, plus Katahdin hair sheep, a cow/calf herd and honey bees.
