eLearning Course: 4R Nutrient Stewardship Learning Modules for Extension Agents
This short course focuses on best nutrient management in Africa that are consistent with the principles and practices of 4R Nutrient Stewardship.
4R Nutrient Stewardship practices are designed to provide plants with the Right Source of nutrients, at the Right Rate, Right Time, and Right Place. Balancing each of these “Rights” will help to ensure that plants have access to proper nutrition throughout their growing season, which will generate profitable yields and prevent soil nutrient depletion and minimize environmental harm.
Once you have completed this course you will be:
- Better equipped to assess whether a crop has been, or will be, fertilized properly.
- Better prepared to answer the overall question “Was the crop given the right source of nutrients at the right rate, time, and place?”
- Better able to help farmers identify opportunities for improvement in fertilizing each specific crop in each specific field.
A certificate acknowledging the completion of this course is available for all who enroll and complete the quiz.
