Farm Sustainability Services Team

Ballance Agri-Nutrients has a specialist team to help farmers navigate increasingly complex environmental regulations and consent requirements to promote clean green land, rivers and streams.

The Farm Sustainability Services team provides nutrient budgets for resource consents, compliance and sale and purchase agreements.

The team also conducts contract nutrient budgeting work for industry bodies and milk processing companies.

Initially focused in the South Island, the team has now expanded its services to the North Island. 

Many regional councils are monitoring farms using the Overseer nutrient management model, which is jointly owned by the fertiliser industry, Agresearch and the Ministry for Primary Industries. 

The team provides expert knowledge of Overseer and modelling farm systems. Team members work closely with their Ballance science and sales colleagues to ensure farmers are given the best science-related advice in the market. 

The Ballance team is focussed on working beside our farmers to ensure their nutrient management practices both provide excellent pasture growth results and also comply with regional plans.
