Putting the N in FarmiNg—SolutioNs for On-Farm NitrogeN Production

Wednesday 24th March 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Agri-Tech Explore: Putting The N In FarmiNg – SolutioNs for On-Farm NitrogeN ProductioN

 Registration is closed for this event
The Haber-Bosch process has been one of the most impactful innovations in agriculture, enabling industrial-scale production of artificial nitrogen for use in synthetic fertiliser. Use of such chemicals was a key contributor to the Green Revolution in India, but the high pressures and temperatures needed, coupled with the relative inefficiency of the reaction have led to calls for more environmentally benign methods of bringing nitrogen to plants. Here we will discuss leading-edge technologies which can potentially lead to on-farm production of fertiliser, including helping plants themselves to increase the levels of nitrogen they make available for their own growth. Join us for a session of out-of-the-box thinking about new ways of producing nitrogen fertiliser
