Practise good fertiliser management by choosing the best application method to apply the correct amount of nutrients at the right time, in the right place and at the right depth (that is, in the area containing the most roots) for your crop, to ensure that all the nutrients are used, not wasted.
How a fertiliser is applied will depend on a range of factors, including the:
- type and amount used
- type of crop and stage of crop growth
- soil type, and
- irrigation system used.
