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.
Complying with the Code of Practice gives users, regulatory authorities and markets the assurance they require that the nutrients used in New Zealand primary production are well managed to avoid or minimise adverse environmental impacts.
This Code is mainly intended as a guide for nutrient advisers and consultants. It is also useful for land managers (farmers and growers) who want to know more about nutrient management planning and the best nutrient management practices for their production system.
The Code is not intended to be read from cover to cover. We encourage you to understand the context in which it can be used, consider the guiding principles for the Code and apply the recommendations on nutrient management planning and nutrient use which are relevant to your farm system.
