Alan Jones of Jones Potato Incoperates a 2,800-acre potato, green bean, citrus and cattle farm. He works with Dennis Coleman of CPS.

What Alan says about the 4Rs:

“4R program ideals have been at the core of my fertility program for years. Adapting my fertilizer programs based on crop needs, weather and raw material prices has enabled Jones Potato Farm to maximize production while keeping costs in check.”

What Dennis says about the 4Rs:

“So many times we get stuck in a rut and repeat the same programs year after year. The 4R Program spurs us into really thinking about fertility programs and to reevaluate how we are managing them. As a result, growers may just end up becoming a little more profitable and an even better steward of the land.”
