The Nutrient Uptake and Removal Guidelines produced by the Canadian Fertilizer Institute is a familiar and valuable resource for agronomists and farmers when making fertilizer management decisions. However, these guidelines are based on data collected as far back as the 80’s, and management practices and crop varieties have changed dramatically since then. Our project aims to develop new nutrient uptake and removal guidelines for 14 annual crops based on both measured values from seed and straw samples collected across Western Canada. The revised guidelines will include estimates for both macro (N, P2O5, K2O, S) and micronutrients (Cu, Zn, B).
