Cereals 2010: DEFRA publishes updated Fertiliser Manual

DEFRA has published the long-awaited update of the Fertiliser Manual RB209.


The document can now be downloaded from the DEFRA website.

The manual provides official recommendations for the use of lime and other major nutrients on most field grown crops.

Its purpose is to help farmers and growers achieve good nutrient management.

The industry has been waiting for some years for the document, first released in 2000, to be updated.

A printed version of the manual can be purchased for £24.99 from www.tso.co.uk or a free copy can be downloaded from the DEFRA website.
