MAF Vegetable Fertiliser Trials - A Reappraisal Using a New Model

The aim of this project is to work toward developing sustainable management practices by making accessible to fertiliser users our interpretation of past research on N, P and K fertiliser use on many New Zealand grown vegetables. The results from each of the five vegetable crops drew specific conclusions as to how the use of fertiliser response model compared to the conclusions possible from the original trials analyses. In most cases there will be substantial benefits to users in having the level of detailed information generated by the model.
