'SCAMP' and SafeGauge for Nutrients': Two new decision support tools for minimising off-site movement of nutrients.
The Six Easy Steps approach to nutrient management in the sugar industry makes soil-specific nutrient recommendations and identifies appropriate management strategies by taking account of differences in key properties of ...
Concepts and value of the nitrogen guidelines contained in the Australian sugar industry's 'SIX EASY STEPS'nutrient management program.
The paper summarises the alternative N management strategies that occur within the Australian sugar industry. It describes best-practice nutrient management and the concepts that underpin the SIX EASY STEPS program, and ...
'SCAMP' and 'SAFEGAUGE FOR NUTRIENTS': two new decision support tools for minimising off-site movement of nutrients
Minimising the off-site movement of nutrients from sugarcane blocks is a priority management issue both from a productivity and an environmental viewpoint. The Six Easy Steps approach to nutrient management in the sugar ...
Extension and adoption of the ‘SIX EASY STEPS’ nutrient management program in sugarcane production in North Queensland
In tropical north Queensland, the need for accelerated adoption of best-practice nutrient management has become more urgent because of increasing pressures for profitable cane production to be achieved in combination with ...
Use of replicated strip-trials for demonstrating the effectiveness of different nutrient management strategies for sugarcane
THE SIX EASY STEPS program is aimed at the adoption of sustainable nutrient management on-farm.
Opportunities for improving the efficiency of use of nitrogen fertiliser in the Australian sugar industry
The recent implementation of controls by the Queensland Government regulating the amount of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fertiliser that can be applied to sugarcane crops in north Queensland are aimed at protecting the ...
The “SIX EASY STEPS” as a delivery mechanism for best practice nutrient management in the Australian sugar industry
Best-practice nutrient management is aimed at minimising the risk of losses in productivity (loss of yield), profitability (loss of income), nutrients (leaching, run-off and/or gaseous losses) and soil resources (erosion ...
Does prolonged green cane trash retention influence nitrogen requirements of the sugarcane crop in the wet tropics
Since the introduction of green cane trash blanketing (GCTB), there has been ongoing interest in its potential to contribute to the nitrogen (N) requirements of the sugarcane crop. An experiment was established at Tully ...
Recognising differences in soil type to guide nutrient inputs on-farm – a case study from Bundaberg
THE Six Easy Steps program is aimed at the adoption of sustainable nutrient management on-farm.
A re-evaluation of the basis for deriving potassium fertiliser recommendations in the Australian sugar industry
Potassium is an essential nutrient for sugarcane production. It is important to ensure that potassium fertiliser use is optimised and takes into account the wide range of conditions in the Australian sugar industry that ...
