Assessing the Effectiveness of On-Farm Mitigation Actions

This research summary describes how effective on-farm mitigations have been so far, by comparing losses of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and sediment in 1995 and…

Balancing water-quality threats from nutrients and production in Australian and NZ dairy farms under low profit margins

We summarise the losses of N and P from Australasian dairy farms, examine the policy drivers used for mitigating losses and evaluate the effectiveness of…

Temperature and Nitrogen Effects on Phosphorus Uptake by Agricultural Stream-Bed Sediments

Climate change will likely increase the growing season, temperatures, and ratio of nitrogen (N) to phosphorus (P) loss from land to water. However, it is…

Assessing the Yield and Load of Contaminants with Stream Order: Would Policy Requiring Livestock to Be Fenced Out of High-Order Streams Decrease Catchment Contaminant Loads?

This paper won the JEQ Best Paper Award 2019. Concentration and flow data for 1998 to 2009 were used to calculate catchment load and yields…
