GRDC’s Crop Nutrition Community of Practice continues to be an important extension initiative for industry, providing reliable information sourced from key research scientists across Australia.
Throughout 2018, we published 46 articles (that’s a lot!). So, we collected our most popular articles from this period – those that best reflect the year’s seasonal conditions and emerging issues. The twelve feature articles cover topics such as planning, soil testing, fertiliser, nutrition and drought, and stubble management.
In the free publication, you’ll also find links to research papers, tools, videos, and other useful resources to help you make the right decisions for your crops in 2019.
