Agtrix - Nutrient Management Plans

MAPS works one-on-one with growers to develop property-specific Nutrient Management Plans and implement the Agtrix Farming program to determine nitrogen and phosphorus budgets and manage the appropriate amount of fertiliser that can be applied on-farm.

This includes detailed advice that can be applied practically, a system that makes record keeping easier, and incentives to improve equipment. The project helps growers reduce their costs by improving nutrient and chemical efficiency, as well as contributing to reducing the amount of dissolved inorganic nitrogen and pesticides that run off farms, improving the regional water quality.

Mackay Whitsunday Water Quality Program - ‘bridging the gap’ through high-quality agronomic advice combined with financial incentives.
