Nutrient Management Program
UF/IFAS Nutrient Management Program
Florida's growers need fertilizer recommendations that are up-to-date and specific to sites where they grow their crops. UF/IFAS is conducting state-funded research into the application of nutrients (fertilizers) to agronomic, vegetable, and fruit crops in order to update IFAS nutrient management recommendations using a "5Rs" concept: Right rate, RIght source, Right timing, Right placement, and Right water management. IFAS recommendations are tied to Best Management Practices (BMPs) implemented by producers to grow their crops efficiently while minimizing environmental impacts.
The UF/IFAS Nutrient Management Program website is designed to be a one-stop shop for all information relating to the latest nutrient research and updated IFAS recommendations.
