How to use the catalogue on-line

Strategies within this catalogue have been organized into 8 categories. By answering the questions, an appropriate subset of strategies will be identified for your specific situation. Within a category the strategies have been ranked as:

  • Win-win strategies: known to reduce N losses to water at minimal cost to the farmer, and also expected to result in an improved net margin for the farmer
  • Low-cost strategies: will reduce N losses to water and have a small cost, so they may reduce net margins slightly
  • High-cost strategies: will reduce N losses to water but will require some investment by the farmer, so they will reduce net margins. These options are not likely to be adopted unless there is some compensation available to the farmer
