Abstract

The fundamentals of nutrient cycling over the past three decades are basically the same but the breadth of subject matter and scale of implementation of soil and nutrient management have changed. Soil is considered for its biological and physical attributes in addition to chemical properties. Farms/orchards are managed at significantly finer scales at paddock or sub-paddock level. The resilience of nutrient management now must consider the contexts of climate change influences, social licence, water quality outcomes and those decisions made and implemented by a more highly trained and scarce people resource.
