Making efficient use of manure - new dossier published

Wageningen UR has published a dossier containing a selection of the most important results, developments and information relating to policy, manure application, the environment, processing and soil quality.  "Worldwide, animal husbandry produces large amounts of manure. This is rich in minerals (phosphates, nitrogen, potassium), but also in proteins, fatty acids and other...

Smart farming technique to boost yields and cut fertiliser pollution

Researchers at Lancaster Univerisity are using X-rays to help farmers increase yields and cut water pollution following an unexpected discovery in a pea and bean crop. Plant and soil scientists hope to combine two new technologies to provide a rapid "same day" measurement of soil phosphorus availability, enabling farmers and growers to make more informed decisions about fertiliser...

UEA research reveals how farmers could mitigate nitrous oxide emissions

Farmers may be able to help reduce emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) by incorporating copper into crop fertilisation processes – according to new research from the University of East Anglia. Global agricultural emissions of the gas have increased by 20 per cent in the last century as a result of widespread use of nitrogen-based synthetic fertilizers. But new...

Reducing the environmental impacts of fertiliser use

Scientists have demonstrated how improvements in nitrogen fertiliser manufacture and their application could help reduce China's agricultural greenhouse gas emissions by around 60%, by 2030, compared to the current business as usual approach. This emissions reduction represents a 2 to 6% reduction in China's overall greenhouse gas emissions and therefore could be significant in the...
