Nutrient Efficiency in Agriculture
Responsible nutrient management is an indispensable part of sustainable agriculture. Nitrogen, phosphate, potassium, and many other nutrients are necessary components in the production of crops used for food, fuel, and feed. If over-applied, however, these nutrients can harm ground water, surface water, air quality, and other parts of the ecosystem, as well as cause negative consequences to plant health and crop yield. As such, farmers and researchers are seeking to enhance nutrient use efficiency — the amount of yield a farmer gets out of the amount of fertilizer (or other amendment) put in — while minimizing nutrient loss.
