Canadian 4R Research Network

Agriculture has a valuable role to play in Canada’s plan to limit the impacts of climate change. Innovative climate smart practices, such as the Nitrous Oxide Emissions Reduction Protocol (NERP) and 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place ®), can improve both the quantity and quality of food for a growing global population without compromising food security, making agriculture more sustainable, more productive, and more resilient.

The Canadian 4R Research Network, a group of nine leading Canadian researchers, are collecting agronomic data which demonstrates the benefits of 4R Nutrient Stewardship to improve farmer economics, feeding the world, and protecting the environment. The research has confirmed science-based evidence that 4R Nutrient Stewardship reduces greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions and diminishes losses of phosphorus to surface waters and nitrate leaching in groundwater.
