ResponsibleAg Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2014. It exists to promote the public welfare by assisting agribusinesses seeking to comply with federal environmental, health, safety and security rules.

The organization provides participating businesses with a federal regulatory compliance audit relating to the safe storage and handling of fertilizers. It also recommends corrective action where needed and offers a robust suite of resources to assist in this regard.

The fertilizer industry recognizes the need to efficiently utilize nutrients in sustainable crop production. 4R Nutrient Stewardship provides science-based information for stakeholders to use for the education, advocacy and implementation of crop nutrient stewardship. It provides information on best management practices that benefit both the environment and the producer’s bottom line.

This site is a collaborative effort of the fertilizer industry. The guidelines for the 4R principles are endorsed and supported by the International Plant Nutrition Institute, The Fertilizer Institute, Fertilizer Canada and the International Fertilizer Industry Association.

The Nutrients for Life Foundation was established in 2004 to provide science-based information on the valuable role fertilizers play in feeding our growing world.

By developing and introducing a relevant curriculum into our nation’s schools, the foundation aims to increase an understanding of how responsible fertilizer use improves the health of our soil, the plants that grow in it and, ultimately, the foods we eat.

In addition to its U.S. operations, Nutrients for Life has international chapters in Canada, Colombia and Mexico.
