Revising the crop nutrient uptake and removal guidelines for Western Canada

Key Result

This project is still in progress, but it aims to revise estimates of the nutrient uptake and removal of crops commonly grown in Western Canada.

Project Summary

Access to current nutrient uptake and removal data is invaluable when making critical cropping decisions such as fertilizer inputs, or even crop rotation decisions. Western Canadian agronomists and farmers have used the nutrient uptake and removal guidelines to inform these decisions, but there is a need to review and update these guidelines as needed.

Objectives

  1. Determine and revise estimates of the nutrient uptake and removal of crops commonly grown in Western Canada.
  2. Develop a user-friendly on-line and mobile app for determining nutrient uptake and removal estimates.
