This handy guide is aimed to help you develop a meaningful nitrogen budget in organic crop production. It provides information on how to calculate N contributions from compost, soil organic matter, cover crops, fertilizers, and crop residues.
The worksheet provides a step-by-step process to inputting all your information from soil tests, fertilizers, etc in order to draft up a working N budget.
Don't hesitate to reach out with questions. I'm happy to complete the worksheet with you for your farm.
This was developed in collaboration with the Geisseler Lab at UC Davis and is partially based on research conducted in Yolo County organic crop fields. Special thanks to Patricia Lazicki.
