Feeding the world’s growing population
New Zealand’s reputation as a quality food producer is growing.
The Fertiliser Association of New Zealand promotes and encourages responsible and scientifically-based nutrient management.
We have received questions recently about whether it is appropriate to apply phosphate (P) fertiliser during the winter months. As a result, the Fertiliser Association has produced an advisory with good management practice principles.
As well as providing basic guidance, the advisory refers readers to our Code of Practice and nutrient management booklets. We also provide questions to help land managers step through a risk assessment process.
