Chapter synopsis: This chapter explores the emerging issues that are likely to influence future approaches to soil and nutrient management in apple orchards. These include climate change and variability, the degradation of soil and water resources, and the future availability and cost of fertilizers. We then consider strategies for precision nutrient and water management with the potential to mitigate the environmental, social and resource limitation challenges identified. Finally, we consider the prospects for alternative production systems and production areas, given the changing climate.
