Technical Reports

Technical reports offer detailed, research-based, information on specific topics regarding nutrient management challenges and opportunities in British Columbia.

At various times, the state of particular resources is assessed to describe particular nutrient management risks to producers. The risks may be directly to production or they may arise from public concern over adverse effects of nutrients on the environment and water quality in particular.

Manure and crop nutrient contents are factors that determine nutrient inputs into and removals from cropped fields. In late 2013, work began to update the ‘book values’ (average values) for manures and crops in B.C. and provide information about the variation in the values among farms and ranches.

Soil Nutrient Studies

Soil nutrient studies have been conducted for agronomic and environmental purposes, in three regions of British Columbia.
