Nutrient Use Efficiency
Why Balanced Fertilization is Key to Improve Ecological and Economical Footprints
Producing enough food to feed the growing world population and reducing at the same time the ecological footprint of the production systems is the great challenge current and future agriculture is facing. The goal of good agricultural practice, considering both economic and ecological factors, is that applied nutrients are fully utilized by the crop and losses are minimized. Examples from studies world-wide show that this requires balanced nutrient supply and application techniques, which favour nutrient uptake, and nutrient use within the plant. In this context, it is important to understand and manage existing nutrient interactions to fully exploit yield and quality potentials of the crops and at the same time reduce negative impacts on soil and the environment for a long-term sustainable crop production.
This webinar focuses on the effects of potassium, magnesium and sulphur to optimize nutrient use efficiency, particularly of nitrogen and phosphorous and thus secure yield and quality.
