Summary

This report, adapted for Saxony, serves converting farmers supported by local advisors as a guideline for a balanced nutrient management at farm level. Essentials of nutrient supply and management measures to consider during the conversion are described to guarantee a successful farming with a naturally based nutrient management.
Especially for the conversion phase it is recommended to calculate nitrogen balance after each crop rotation with the help of advisors. This report shows the methodology and frequency for assessing parameters, which result in an overall input-output nitrogen balance. The farmers will get estimations on long-term yielding, optimization potentials in crop rotation and improvements of fertilization strategies.
To implement long-term planning and soil quality by humus balance, an adapted model (based on VDLUFA) is proposed which is not further explained in this tool.
