Ongoing scientific research is critical to New Zealand agriculture. The Fertiliser Association gives research funding high priority, spending in excess of $1million annually.
Funded research aims to generate new knowledge and innovation in nutrient use. It also aims to deliver direct financial or environmental benefits to land managers, allied sectors, and to the country as a whole.
