Advanced Agrilytics Certified in 4R Nutrient Stewardship

INDIANAPOLIS –  Advanced Agrilytics has achieved Year One certified status in Indiana’s 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program.

“Agribusiness Council of Indiana is pleased to see that Advanced Agrilytics understands that 4R nutrient management brings value to their growers and their community,” said ACI President Bruce Kettler.

The 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program is a voluntary program for ACI members that encourages agricultural retailers and independent crop consultants to adopt proven best practices through the 4Rs, which refers to using the Right Source of Nutrients at the Right Rate and Right Time in the Right Place. This approach provides a science-based framework for plant nutrition management and sustained crop production, while considering specific individual farms’ needs. It is a proactive, responsible commitment aimed at the long-term improvement of water quality. 

“We appreciate the recognition that we are doing our part through responsible nutrient management,” said Travis Kimmel, Advanced Agrilytics Director of Agronomic Technology. “Guiding efficient, sustainable nutrient application helps our growers optimize crop and soil inputs, as well as mitigate risk and improve overall production.”

“By becoming 4R Certified, Advanced Agrilytics has proven its dedication to the long-term improvement of Indiana’s water quality,” said Jane Stautz, Advanced Agrilytics Sustainability Leader. “Nutrient stewardship is critical within a food supply chain and consumer environment that is demanding sustainable and regenerative farming practices.”

The 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program occurs on a 3-year certification cycle where an entity is audited on a set of standards developed by the Nutrient Stewardship Council. This set of standards outlines best practices to be implemented. Each requirement is evaluated each audit period by a private, third-party auditor via an in-person audit to earn or maintain certification.

“Advanced Agrilytics approach to 4R nutrient management fits perfectly with our mission of healthy soils, clean water and viable farms,” said Mike Dunn, director of freshwater conservation programs for TNC and chair of the Indiana Nutrient Stewardship Council. “Congratulations to Advanced Agrilytics for their commitment to the 4Rs and becoming Year One Certified.”
