What Joel Says About the 4Rs:

Closely following the 4R practices has helped us farm better than before. We’ve seen a lot of yield increases. The 4Rs, advanced genetics and improved farming practices are all parts of the plan to continually improve. Combined, they make for a better running, more sustainable farm.”

What Andrew Says About the 4Rs:

“The 4R program is essentially mandatory for us. You have to bury anhydrous ammonia, fertilize the right amount for yield goals and do it at the right time. If our customers were applying fertilizer at the wrong time, we wouldn’t be in business very long.”
