Description: Fert Research’s Code of Practice for Nutrient Management (2007) considers fertiliser use within the broader context of nutrient management. With this approach, a nutrient budget is the basis for developing a nutrient management plan. This Code assists in achieving that, placing the planning within the context of a farm management system.

While it is mainly intended as a guide for nutrient advisers and consultants, this Code is also useful for land managers (farmers and growers) who want to know more about nutrient management planning and the best nutrient management practices for their production system.
