Is the recent sharp drop in fertiliser usage a major concern for pastoral production

, : Is the recent sharp drop in fertiliser usage a major concern for pastoral production. Discussion Paper, Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit, Lincoln College, University of Canterbury (121, Vol 2): 247-255

A drastic deterioration in the farmgate terms of trade in New Zealand's pastoral sector caused a sharp drop in demand for phosphorus fertilizer from 2 Mt in 1984/85 to just over 1 Mt in 1986/87. This drop in fertilizer usage in turn generated concerns about possible losses in the pastoral production base among politicians and farming related groups.
