Chapter 1: Fert$mart Planning

1.6 Implement the nutrient plan

Implementation of the nutrient management plan requires the farmer to:

  • Follow the 4Rs fertiliser program and other strategies in the nutrient management plan (where practical and affordable).
  • Record the actual management decisions; sources, rates, placement and timing (including frequency) for each fertiliser application, and note the reasons for changes to the plan (e.g. weather conditions, product or contractor availability).
  • Refer to DairySAT checklists for managing soils , fertiliser , effluent and irrigation.
