Canada: Prince Edward Island Potato Board shows virtues of ‘4R’ method of fertilizer use

Farmers and environmental groups on Prince Edward Island learned the advantages of more precise fertilizer application Thursday. The people on the tour spent the day seeing the results of the 4R method of fertilizing. The method involves using the right source of nutrients, applied at the right rate, in right time and right place. “The end goal is to try to find a way to do the job better from both an environmental point of view and profitability point of view for the grower,” said Steve Watts of Genesis Crop Systems.
