2.1. Field Nutrient Budgeting

A Nutrient Management Plan (NMP) is a key BEMP strategy in running a farm to optimise crop yield and quality, minimize fertilizer input costs and protect soil and water (European Commission, 2018). The principles of nutrient management are simple and include:

• ensuring that the added nutrient is available to the crop.
