2013 Green Agri-Business Designation Program

THE MICHIGAN AGRI-BUSINESS ASSOCIATION AWARDS THE GREEN AGRI-BUSINESS
DESIGNATION ANNUALLY TO AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES THAT COMBINE BUSINESS
EXCELLENCE WITH A COMMITMENT TO PROTECTING MICHIGAN’S NATURAL RESOURCES.

Recipients are recognized for implementing cutting-edge, environmentally-friendly
practices, including installing  energy efficiency equipment, water conservation, reducing
carbon emissions, investing in renewable bio-based fuels and promoting site-specific
agronomy.  Employing the 4R nutrient stewardship system can help maximize crop yields,
reduce costs associated with fertilizer application and minimize negative environmental
impacts.  For these reasons, the Michigan Agri-Business Association is including the 4R
system as part of its Green Agri-Business Designation Program for 2013 and 2014.  For
2013, the 4R system will be part of MABA’s recommended practices for agronomy
retailers participating in the Green Designation Program.  For 2014, participants will be
required to embrace the principles of the 4R system and implement them in practice.  Also,
new additional benefits for participating in the 2013 - 2014 green designation program will
include an awards reception, new incentive programs, and more market exposure.  Please
stay tuned, as applications will be available soon!  For questions contact Kara at the
MABA office by phone (517) 336-0223 or email kara@miagbiz.org
