RB209 Section 1 Principles of nutrient management and fertiliser use

In this section you will find essential information on good nutrient management including soil properties and liming. The information is relevant to arable, horticultural, potato and livestock producers.

The Nutrient Management Guide (RB209) helps you make the most of organic materials and balance the benefits of fertiliser use against the costs - both economic and environmental. It explains the value of nutrients, soil and why good nutrient management is about more than just the fertilisers you buy; it can save you money as well as help protect the environment.
