PERRYSBURG - More than 250 agricultural retailers and stakeholders from the Ohio, Indiana and Michigan agriculture communities attended the launch of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification program Tuesday in Perrysburg, Ohio. The voluntary program is geared toward the long-term improvement of Lake Erie's water quality by applying the 4R principles.
The 4R approach - using the Right Nutrient Source at the Right Rate and Right Time in the Right Place - serves as the guideline for the new certification program, which will be administered in the tri-state area by the Ohio AgriBusiness Association on behalf of the Nutrient Stewardship Council.
"The program has several features that will make it very effective in reducing the problems with algae blooms in Lake Erie," said Bill Stanley, assistant director of The Nature Conservancy in Ohio and a member of the Nutrient Stewardship Advisory Committee.  "Most important are a set of scientifically rigorous standards developed with industry and academic involvement, as well as independent, third-party audits to ensure that those standards are followed."
