Optimising nutrient management for improved productivity and fruit quality in cherries (ST16005)
What’s it all about?
This investment was one component of a larger collaborative program spanning the horticulture, cotton, dairy and sugar sectors, funded through the Australian Government’s Rural R&D for Profit initiative.
Led by the Cotton Research & Development Corporation, More Profit From Nitrogen: enhancing the nutrient use efficiency of intensive cropping and pasture systems was established to help primary producers increase nitrogen use efficiency. This particular sub-project is developing information on nitrogen requirements and management in cherry orchards to help increase the quantity and quality of cherry yields.
