Field day will focus on 4Rs

Producers invited to free event July 24 in Trenton, Mo

Producers who want to learn more about improving nutrient management, soil health, crop yields and water quality are invited to MFA’s 4R Field Day on Wednesday, July 24, from 5 to 8 p.m. at North Central Missouri College Barton Farm Campus in Trenton, Mo.

The evening’s agenda will feature farmers sharing their successes, struggles, equipment modifications and use of conservation practices to improve soil health and reduce nutrient runoff in their fields. Representatives from MFA, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency and Missouri Department of Conservation will be on hand to discuss conservation practices and provide assistance with programs available to the state’s producers.

MFA Conservation Specialist Emily Beck, who is coordinat­ing the event, said the field day will promote the 4R Prin­ciples of Nutrient Stewardship—Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, and Right Place—which provide a framework to achieve cropping system goals such as increased production, better productivity, enhanced environmental protection and improved sustainability.

The event is free and dinner will be provided. For more information, contact Beck at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit with your local MFA representative.
