On ground testing and modelling of the effectiveness of enhanced efficiency fertilisers in the wet tropics catchments of the Great Barrier Reef

This project is building on four years of work conducted as part of EEF60, which concludes in June 2021. The new project sees SRA continuing with 17 on-farm trial sites with enhanced efficiency fertilisers in Far North Queensland. In addition to the 17 controlled and replicated trials, the project will fine-tune a decision support tool for growers on selecting EEFs. The new project will also involve CSIRO researchers who will use the APSIM farming systems model to develop information on the expected benefits of EEFs to inform when and where EEFs can be used in place of urea to reduce nitrogen losses.
