The Department of Agriculture and Food in WA releases a fertiliser calculator online for horticulturalists

A new online fertiliser calculator developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food in WA aims to help horticulturalists select the best options from hundreds of commercially-available products.

The department's new fertiliser calculator is designed to compare the nutrient content of more than 1500 commercially-available fertilisers and make it easier for growers to keep track of the nutrients they've applied to each crop. The calculator is also a simple tool in which products can be easily compared for their nutrient content and price and  additionally provides information on the compatibility of different fertilisers when mixed together.

The fertiliser calculator was developed with co-funding from Horticulture Australia on the project, 'Continuing on-farm improvements through good practice demonstration and extension'.

The calculator is cost free and available on the department website at
