Abstract: (En)
Common nitrogen and phosphorus fertilisers are very soluble. In the high rainfall areas, especially on sandy soils in Western Australia, these nutrients can be leached into the groundwater and washed into waterways. Discusses nitrogen loss pathways, and how to minimise nitrate leaching from pasture; phosphorus loss pathways and how to minimise phosphorus leaching from pasture. The management techniques outlined are only effective if there are no other limitations or deficiencies. Soil and tissue testing s
