Better grassland fertilisation can improve the world’s food supply

Better grassland fertilisation can improve the world’s food supply

Global improvements in grassland management could see grasslands taking on a significantly more important role in food production. Better management would increase the production of meat and milk and prevent the need for additional feed for grazing livestock – feed in the form of grain crops that could otherwise be available for human consumption. Better […]

Global redistribution of phosphorus use could improve food security

Global redistribution of phosphorus use could improve food security

If the use and reuse of the finite resource phosphorus as a nutrient for plants were to be handled with greater care worldwide it would become possible to produce sufficient food for the global population in and after 2050.

But new research into the processes of nutrient cycling published today reveals how farmers could mitigate the effects of this harmful gas by boosting copper levels in fields. Lead […]

Nitrogen Ideas Lab

Nitrogen Ideas Lab

Three teams of UK and USA researchers will begin a programme of novel research to revolutionise current farming methods by giving crops the ability to thrive without using costly, polluting manufactured fertilisers. The three highly innovative projects include: searching the planet for a lost bacterium with special, sought-after properties; using synthetic biology to create a […]
