Kuhn North America, Inc. announces its partnership with 4R Nutrient Stewardship. 4R Nutrient Stewardship provides a framework to achieve cropping system goals such as increased production, greater profitability, enhanced environmental protection and improved sustainability. To achieve those goals, the 4R concept incorporates the principles of applying the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place.

“Today’s farmers face not only tight operating margins, but also pressure from both consumers and regulators to demonstrate sustainable farming practices,” says Kuhn North America president Greg Petras. “The 4R Partnership provides the entire ag industry with a framework to meet these requirements without sacrificing farm profitability. Kuhn offers a wide range of implements designed to improve the efficiency of field operations, and we are proud to support this initiative by helping farmers implement the 4R scientific principles in each pass across the field.”

With Kuhn products such as Gladiator strip-till machines, Axis precision dry fertilizer spreaders and ProSpread manure spreaders with AccuSpread technology, the company provides growers with an innovative range of machines that help them completely apply the 4R concept of nutrient stewardship.
