0

Visitors to Cereals 2017 will be among the first to get access to the AHDB Nutrient Management Guide (RB209).
Scheduled for release in May, the new publication will be available at the event (which takes place on 14 and 15 June 2017 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire) from the AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds stand (919).
Nutrient management reviewed
A £98,000 project to review the current Fertiliser Manual RB209 was overseen by the AHDB-led UK Partnership for Crop Nutrient Management and delivered by an ADAS-led consortium of experts from across the UK research community. It was supported by £200,000-worth of in-kind funding by industry.
The 2016 review, which took account of the latest research developments since 2009, was split into six distinct themed work packages: principles of crop nutrient management; organic materials; grass and forage; cereals and oilseeds; potatoes and horticulture.
Farmers, growers, agronomists, breeders, researchers, fertiliser companies and other industry experts were among those consulted on how existing RB209 recommendations could be improved to incorporate the latest scientific advances.
George Lawrie, who chairs the UK Partnership for Crop Nutrient Management steering group, said: “We’ve left no stone unturned during the review, every aspect of nutrient management has been revisited and scrutinised.
“Advances in nutrient management have been incorporated and the new guide will provide evidence-based nutrient management recommendations that growers can trust.”
The updated edition will be split into seven colour-coded sections, so users can cherry-pick relevant information and individual sections can be updated more easily to reflect the latest research.
