This report develops generic methods for quantifying the biomass and nutrient composition of oil mallee, and evaluates potential nutrient export rates for different species and biomass harvest scenarios in relation to site nutrient capital. The need for ash recycling and nutrient application to conserve site nutrient capital and prevent onset of nutrient deficiencies is discussed. This study is an important first step in providing improved practices to manage the nutrition of mallee crops for optimum production.
