  • Managing Nitrogen Nutrition and Grain Quality

    Managing Nitrogen Nutrition and Grain Quality

    The fertilisation of cultivated plants can cause chemical pollution. In order to improve the agro-environmental effects from large culture plants, FORCE-A provides tools for improved control of nitrogen fertiliser content. For example, by diagnosing the level of nitrogen nutrition in cereals, these decision-aid tools (DAT) trigger and adjust the last intake in the optical sensor to control protein content in the grain (technological quality criteria)...
