4R Research Fund

The 4R Research Fund was established by the fertilizer industry to help determine sustainability indicators and environmental impact data for implementation of 4R Nutrient Stewardship across North America. The fund provides needed resource support with a focus on measuring and documenting the economic, social and environmental impacts of 4R Nutrient Stewardship.

The fund drew its initial support from members of the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI), the Canadian Fertilizer Institute (CFI) and The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) and now receives support from a growing
list of agribusiness companies and stakeholder organizations.

Reports on projects past and current can be viewed here.
