Crop Nutrition

7 June 2017

Optimising crop yield and quality whilst managing finances and considering the environment is the scenario facing producers, and it emphasises the need for careful nutrient management and planning.

Increasing understanding around fertiliser use and uptake by plants is a continuing area of work. As is the exploration of potential savings and looking at how to make best use of new technology and nutrient sources.
