The 4Rs in a Latin American Context

Right Source at Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place

Sustainable development is recognized to consist of three components: economic, social, and environmental. Every one of these components is essential to sustainability. The 4Rs Nutrient Stewardship is a framework for nutrient use developed by the fertilizer industry to provide for sustainability. The 4Rs Nutrient Stewardship is an innovative approach to best management practices (BMPs) for fertilizers and other nutrient sources (crop residues, manure, recycling products, amendments, and biological fixed N2), which ensures that the right source is applied at the right rate, right time, and right place (Bruulsema et al., 2008; Bruulsema et al., 2009; IFA, 2009)
