  • explain how this Code’s approach assists land managers to manage nutrients in farm production systems (Guiding Principles)
  • give detailed instructions on preparing a nutrient management plan for arable, pastoral, horticultural and forestry production (Nutrient Management Planning)
  • provide best management practices to manage environmental risks from nutrient management activities (Best Management Practices and Considerations – fertiliser)
  • provide more detailed explanations of technical or legal topics (Appendix 1)
  • give detailed information about a wide range of topics, including how nutrients behave in the soil and the processes involved, different fertiliser types, and application methods (view Fact Sheets).
