Abstract/Summary The disposal of waste to agricultural land requires a systematic and transparent assessment procedure to ensure environmental and production sustainability. A hybrid model of risk assessment used in the general risk, environmental management and the mining industries was developed and tested using the waste from a yeast factory. The model is systematic and cybernetic and develops a succession of decisions that have the capacity to focus the environmental and agronomic considerations down to individual crops, land and management systems. The process directly links environmental risk assessment and development of management plans to agronomic development of the use waste products.
