Research showed it was possible to measure and reduce nitrogen (N) loss in real-time from a vegetable production paddock in the Hawke's Bay. How effective would a cover crop be in soaking up excess N from the paddock over winter? This article summarises the results of a Rural Professionals Fund project that aimed to compare data from a nitrate sensor installed in situ with data from grab samples, and to establish if in situ measurements could be used as a reliable source of information to enable real-time modification of good agricultural practices.
