2017 Annual Interpretive Summary

Using data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Australian Bureau of Agriculture and Resource Economics, a third set of data on nutrient use and agricultural productivity was collated to provide regional estimates of nutrient balance for nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), and sulfur (S) across Australia.
