October 14, 2015. Dr. Phillips will explain how the principle of precision agriculture is intrinsically linked with 4R Nutrient Stewardship.
Silicon (Si) is generally not considered an essential element for plant growth. However, due to its important role in plant nutrition, particularly under stressful conditions, it is now recognized as a “beneficial substance” or “quasi-essential.”
A scalable pilot project, initiated by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network and based on the 4R Nutrient Stewardship framework.
“A person may need a doctor, lawyer, architect, and so many other professionals a few times in one’s life, but everyone needs a farmer at least three times a day.”

Cobalt (Co) fertilization is occasionally reported to benefit crop growth, but the need for supplemental Co is rather rare. Cobalt has only recently been recognized as a potentially essential nutrient for plants. Cobalt is necessary for nitrogen (N) fixation occurring within the nodules of legume plants.
Let's meet nitrogen, one of our essential building blocks of life and a vital part of every cell, plant, insect and animal. This video describes how and why modern nitrogen fertilizer was developed, as well as the strategies farmers use to grow healthier and higher yielding crops with nitrogen fertilizer.
Nickel (Ni) is the most recent element to be added to the list of essential plant nutrients.
IPNI partnered with students from the University of Georgia Dramatic Media Department to develop a short stop-motion, animated educational video to promote the International Year of Soil. This eight-minute video, called ‘The Importance of Lios’ demonstrates the importance of earthworms in healthy soil and subtly promotes the vital role of plant nutrients and balanced soil fertility.
