Reducing Nitrogen losses in the High Rainfall Zone of Victoria

Strategies to reduce Nitrogen (N) losses in Victorian High Rainfall Zone (HRZ) cropping systems are getting clearer.
Recent research in south western Victoria examined rates of N applied, placement of fertilisers and nitrification inhibitors. This work is part of the national agricultural nitrous oxide research program, supported by the GRDC.
