Nitrogen (N) - the element that is removed in the largest quantity with crop production.
Calculate the contribution of pulse crops to the N supply and consider if you can change the N fertiliser rate for crops.
Keep a watch on soil organic carbon (soil organic matter).
When calculating target yield for crops, consider the plant available soil water.
Consider the need for any other nutrients to be applied.
How about a year-to-year nutrient budget?
As a monitoring tool, place zero N and high N strips in the paddock.
