  • Intensive grassland farming could have deep effects: sequestering significantly less soil carbon

    Huge amounts of soil carbon have been discovered up to 1 metre below grassland in a recent UK study. Yet most carbon inventories do not assess soil deeper than 30 cm. Furthermore, this research suggests that intensive management of grassland, involving high rates of fertiliser use and livestock grazing, may deplete carbon at these depths. Globally, soil contains more carbon than all the ...

  • NREL Demonstrates Light-Driven Process for Enzymatic Ammonia Production

    A new process using light to reduce dinitrogen into ammonia, the main ingredient in chemical fertilizers could inspire development of new, more sustainable processes that eliminate the energy-intensive, lengthier processes now commonly in use.

  • Sustainable silage maize farming requires earlier varieties

    Dutch silage maize farmers can increase their yield in the long term by using earlier varieties. This was the conclusion reached by maize scientists at Wageningen UR based on many years of practical cultivation tests. The use of earlier varieties increases the chance that the maize will ripen properly and ensures better (soil) conditions for harvesting. Moreover, it would provide more space for ...

  • Falling Fuel and Fertiliser Prices – Bulk Buying Brings Additional Savings

    As fuel and fertiliser prices ease somewhat, not everyone working in this sector benefited. Agricultural co-operatives are one such sector that suffered falls in turnover as a result, despite enjoying a record number of invoices. This was the case for Fram Farmers, as reported in East Anglian Daily Times. However, independent farmers and buying groups are sure to receive the falls positively and ...

  • A Focus on Crop Yields – Liquid Fertiliser Tanks To Lower Overheads

    Aberdeen Press and Journal discuss this week how arable farmers can cut costs and boost yields. To leverage a return on investment, growers must of course minimise the cost per tonne produced and one such way of doing this is to maximise crop yield. But obviously, according to BASF’s Scottish agronomy manager, Dudley Kitching, there is no ‘silver bullet’ to achieve increased ...
