Verdesain Life Sciences awarded 4R Nutrient Stewardship Partnership

Verdesain Life Sciences of Cary, North Carolina has been named a partner of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Program supervised by the Fertilizer Institute as a result of Verdesain’s mission of promoting a more sustainable and efficient agricultural industry.

Verdesain is committed to helping row crop and specialty crop farmers get the most out of their investments through the research and development of technologies to address agricultural challenges, Greg Thompson, chief operating officer of Verdesian Life Sciences, said.

“Since the company’s inception, Verdesian has been committed to becoming a partner of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Program,” Thompson said. “We are proud to now be recognized among an impressive list of industry leaders in environmental accountability. Verdesian will continue to support farmers by developing new and innovative ways for them to remain sustainable stewards of their land and simultaneously maximize their productivity on every acre.”

The 4R principles of nutrient stewardship stipulate that fertilizer applications should encompass the right source, the right rate, the right time and the right place. The company’s products and technologies incorporate the 4R values so that they are scientifically researched, economically and environmentally sustainable with a focus on crop health and nutrition, Thompson said.

Farming operations that follow 4R principles see increased profits from decreased nutrient loss, which can also lead to improvements in the environment, such as a lower impact on local watersheds.

“We want inputs to make a farmer more efficient, so they can still experience a strong ROI while being cognizant of the environment,” Thompson said. “For example, our polymer technologies can allow farmers to reduce their phosphorus and nitrogen rates but still continue to meet their crop production goals and yield expectations. These are the types of innovative technologies we are continuing to develop and why the 4R nutrient partnership is a natural fit to the Verdesian core values.”
