This project investigated the impacts of a suite of certified organic nutrients applied to pasture used for beef grazing during the conversion phase to a certified organic system. It also investigated interactions between soil microorganisms and ground rock fertilisers in pasture soil to determine the potential mechanisms for release of nutrients from rock surfaces in the soil environment.
This report is targeted at growers and researchers who are interested in the nutrient cycling processes and farm nutrient budgets that underpin organic management systems, especially during the conversion phase to organic certification.
