For Chris Snip of Agris Co-operative in Ontario, Canada, the 4R approach to nutrient management is personal.
Snip has been a Certified Crop Advisor for 16 years and was one of five crop specialists recently named as the first recipients of the new GROWMARK Endure 4R Advocate award. “My family and I spend a lot of time in Lake Erie, fishing and swimming, and I’ve taken it as a personal thing,” he says. “I have the opportunity to reduce phosphorus loss from a lot of acres, that’s given me an opportunity to do more than a lot of people could.”
Snip is also an active member of Delta Waterfowl, The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, and a board member of the local Soils and Crop Association.
