A whole-farm Nutrient Management Plan (NMP) comprises advanced soil testing and analyses to determine optimal crop nutrient requirements, increasing crop yield. Our NMP contributes towards sugar cane Best-Management-Practice Accreditation and will increase nutrient use efficiency by comparing fertiliser inputs and crop sugar yield.
Farming sugarcane in the Eastern-Queensland wet tropics carries an accountability to reduce fertiliser runoff from our cane fields to the Great Barrier Reef, improving downstream water quality and showcasing our industry’s environmental stewardship.
