Achieving Farm Nutrient Balance
We call on all involved in the food chain to commit to managing the nutrient cycle on UK farms, to build on past progress and to show results by 2030.
We will do this by taking a more integrated approach to soil and crop and animal nutrition as the foundation to sustaining future food production, meeting environmental targets and net zero carbon commitments.
We all agree, the key is to put the focus back on the soil, on the crop and on the animal – targeting overall health and condition, correcting nutritional imbalance or deficiency, and employing all technologies and knowledge to deliver recognisable improvements. The benefits can be measured using these Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
