Fertiliser management

Effective nutrient management is a fundamental part of good farm practice and to farm profitability. Getting the balance of nutrients right from all sources available to the growing crop - organic, soil and liquid or bagged fertiliser - can make a real difference to enterprise margins

The economic response in crop or grass yields far outweighs the fertiliser cost up to the "break-even point" - the point at which one additional kilogram of nutrient is just paid for by the value of the extra yield it produces.

This series of academies looks at managing the careful balance of crop needs, application rates and environmental care.
