Sustainable Nutrient Management

For the past decades, the Department of Agroecology has been very active with regard to nutrient cycling in order to optimise production and minimise losses. These efforts have been intensified in recent years. 

Central to these efforts are instruments for improving utilisation of nutrients from plant residues and fertiliser (commercial fertiliser, animal manure and residues), reducing greenhouse gas emissionss, reducing impact on the aquatic environment, and ensuring soil fertility. Our efforts range from basic research to applied research with the aim of ensuring that agricultural soils continue to be a suitable basis for optimising nutrient supply in a sustainable plant biomass production.
