Interpretive Summary

Nitrogen (N) fertilization provides essential benefits for food production, but its optimal management is subject to a high level of complexity. The fertilizer industry, agronomists, consultants, and farmers recognize the 4Rs as the basis for optimum fertilization, but their implementation is knowledge-intensive and site-specific.
