Fertilisers can be a critical addition to improving crop (including grass) growth if used efficiently and appropriately in line with crop requirement. Through implementing good practice around nutrient management, farmers can enhance productivity, reduce costs, reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutants emissions, protect the environment, and ensure long-term agricultural sustainability.

  • Inorganic fertilisers are those in which nutrients are obtained through extraction or industrial processes.
  • Organic fertilisers are those which contain plant or animal-based material, which either occur as naturally occurring process or by-product.
