What is nutrient stewardship?

Nutrient stewardship refers to the efficient and effective planning and management of plant nutrients; in a manner that improves the social, economic and environmental performance of mineral and organic fertilizers.

Nutrient stewardship is implemented for instance through site-and crop-specific implementation of scientific management principles related to source, rate, timing and placement.
