The Cropnuts soil fertility maps can be used to generate reliable predictions of multiple different soil properties at regional and national scales. Working with multiple fertilizer companies and blenders, Cropnuts have used this information to support the development of fertilizer products that are regionally and crop specific, giving farmers access to fertiliser blends that are tailored to their local soil types.
These maps can also be used by regional and national governments to develop locally specific policies for soil health and fertiliser use. This is an important step away from the blanket fertiliser recommendations, which can lead to leaching and environmental contamination.
