Session 2 - Part 2
Dale Cowan is the Agronomy Strategy Manager and Senior Agronomist for both AGRIS and Wanstead Farmers Cooperatives in Southwestern Ontario. His responsibilities involve training and supporting customer facing staff in utilizing technology and knowledge transfer in the key areas of stewardship and effective product positioning. His goal is to empower customers and owners to make optimal decisions concerning their farming practices. Join the Fertilizer Canada team to learn more about the 4R’s of Nutrient Stewardship; Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, and Right Place. 4R Nutrient Stewardship balances farmer, industry, and government goals to improve on-farm economics, crop productivity, and fertilizer efficiency while benefiting the environment. Fertilizer Canada believes sustainable farming is the future, and in many cases, that future is already underway.
