Sustainable farming practices conserve soil, build long term soil tilth, protect surface and groundwater resources and reduce input costs for the producer. Some of these practices include preventing soil erosion and compaction, building soil organic matter content, monitoring soil nutrient levels and adjusting fertilizer timing and rate applications, for maximum plant use. All of these affect the quality and quantity of crop production which can result in greater farm profits. These publications explain new research and Best Management Practices (BMPs) in sustainable nutrient management.
