The Nitrogen Books for Central Queensland and for South Queensland/Northern New South Wales project are a compilation of current research and farmer knowledge on soil nitrogen management. The books outline the range of tools that are available to assist growers to manage nitrogen and climate risk for maximum yields and to address soil fertility decline.

Topics include understanding and managing soil biology, gains and losses of soil nitrogen, determining crop demand for nitrogen, the soil's capacity to supply nitrogen, determining crop nitrogen requirement, evaluating financial risk, applying fertiliser and contribution from legumes and pulses.
