Farmer Perspectives: Reducing N

Conference Barn

Artificial nitrogen has transformed agricultural production arguably like no other input, yet excess quantities of this highly reactive nutrient also cause a host of negative environmental impacts. With typical NUEs of ~50% the norm, there is scope to improve efficiencies and reduce dependency on bagged N. This session will share a selection of on-farm strategies being implemented by UK [and IE] farmers and via a discussion panel, will explore a selection of case studies in detail.
