Best Management Practices for Nitrogen

The statewide Nitrogen project aimed to formulate practical management guidelines to minimise nitrogen losses while maintaining productivity in dairy pastures in south eastern Australia; evaluate a range of existing simulation models for their applicability to Nitrogen cycling in grazed dairy pasture systems in south eastern Australia, and identify critical gaps in information. In order to formulate practical management guidelines, critical reviews of all Nitrogen research conducted in Victoria relevant to intensive dairy pasture systems were conducted for both flood irrigated and dryland systems. These reviews summarised current and past research on nitrogen for intensive pastures, identifying critical gaps in information.
