The improvement of New Zealands pastures over the last ISO years has increased the nutrient status of the soil as a result of the application of fertiliser, an increased soil organic matter content and increased biological activity. The grazing animal has also influenced the nutrient status of the soil by increasing the rate at which nutrients cycle between the soil, plants and animals. However, the grazing animals also cause losses of nutrients from the soil through concentrating nutrients… CONTINUE READING
