Nutrient management for the land and environment

Nutrient management for the land and environment

Description

Improving nutrient use efficiency on-farm benefits both farm profitability and the farm environmental footprint.

AgResearch has a long history of research on nutrient use and efficiency, developing a scientific understanding of nutrient cycling through the farm system, culminating in science-based advice for the pastoral sector.

Much of this advice is incorporated into OVERSEER Nutrient Budgets, a decision support system for nutrient management, and the industry standard in New Zealand.

Effective nutrient management focuses on the animal, the plant and the soil.
