A risk-return framework was developed to assess nutrient management options, accounting for differences in risk aversion among growers, to provide analyses relevant to a range of grain growing regions... Monitoring soil fertility can have the dual benefit of reducing input costs where inputs are not necessary and increasing profit by identifying opportunities to improve yields with increased nutrient input... The outcomes of the project demonstrate the profit and productivity risks associated with both over- and under-fertilising with N and P, and the degree to which these risks apply is heavily dependent on climatic, soil and price factors...
