Six easy steps - continuing perspectives in time and space

The concept of SIX EASY STEPS means combining several possible actions to ensure sustainable nutrient usage on a cane farm. This combination forms a ‘whole system’ approach to nutrient management. This overarching project has the following major objectives:

  • Revise the SIX EASY STEPS knowledge base and guidelines specifically with regards nitrogen.
  • Link to several other current and planned projects to develop and establish sets of district-specific guideline tables that indicate when and how to adjust the baseline SIX EASY STEPS N guidelines from 'normal' circumstances.
  • Provide specific nitrogen (N) guidelines and Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) data from continuing or new field trials with aspects of temporal/spatial management options.
  • Update the SIX EASY STEPS technology transfer mechanisms.
