The papers in this Special Edition of Crop & Pasture Science have arisen from a project (Making Better Fertiliser Decisions for Cropping Systems in Australia BFDC) that has not only collected and synthesised a very valuable set of historical nutrient response data (from State Departments of Agriculture, CSIRO, Universities and, importantly, fertiliser companies), but has also demonstrated highly effective involvement of stakeholders that guarantees widespread application of the conclusions. The re-examination of fertiliser response surfaces and soil test interpretations has led to a superior understanding of fertiliser management.

Plant nutrition is a critical component of sustainable intensification of agriculture to feed the world’s growing population. The work of this project, and conclusions of these papers, has provided the best available knowledge to underpin decisions on crop nutrition and managing rotations.

Papers in the Special Edition have identified soil testing knowledge gaps for certain crops and nutrients and have provided a guide for developing future research programs and prioritising resources.
