Crop production depends heavily on having nutrients readily available for plant uptake. Management of all nutrient sources, including commercial fertilizer, compost and manure, within the constraints of farm production systems and operational goals are prerequisite for both profitable crop production and environmental sustainability.
Inappropriate management of these sources can lead to a reduced economic return and environmental degradation of both, surface and ground water. It is imperative that nutrient management planning activities are recognized and carried out.
