Accurate sampling is one of the fundamental building blocks for evidence based fertilizer recommendations. Many of the differences in soil test results and ultimately in divergent fertilizer recommendations, can be traced back to sampling errors or varied sampling approaches. It is essential to reduce errors by getting the sampling process right. Click on the Soil Sampling heading above to find out more.

Greenhouse gas implications for agriculture, soils and fertilizer.
In response to climate change issues, Fertcare® has brought together new information on nitrous oxide and nitrogen use efficiency from recent research.
There has been a renewed focus to better understand the role and function of soil carbon. Fertcare has provided a snapshot of current knowledge and signposts the key messages and reports coming from recent research and investigations across Australia.
This guide benefits from the extensive nutrient management experience within the fertilizer industry and provides you with the tools to develop and implement a Nutrient Management Code of Practice for your industry, region or farm.
