The KIC2025 Webinar on Residual Plant-Available Nitrogen Inventory held on October 19, 2012 discussed a recently launched a program in conjunction with the University of Illinois that provides growers an opportunity to inventory the residual plant-available nitrogen after harvest and track the residual N into next spring with the possibility of adjusting the total amount of nitrogen applied depending upon the residual nitrogen remaining. The program will help stimulate growers to think of nitrogen as a management system rather than an application and will help promote the use of the Four Rs of nutrient management.

On September 1, 2011 members of the CBMP held a press conference at the Farm Progress Show to announce the official start of KIC by 2025. Work will begin in six priority watersheds beginning in the fall of 2011. KIC by 2025 will seek to educate the agricultural sector, dedicate significant resources toward research to reduce nutrient losses and enhance nutrient efficiency, educate suppliers and farmers, and measure the adoption of in-field practices to enhance nutrient stewardship through the adoption of the 4R's: Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place.
