  • Fertiliser tax of €0.05–0.27 per kilogram calculated for France as incentive to limit its use

    Farmers seeking to make the most of high crop prices may increase the area of land farmed with a valuable crop and also apply more fertiliser. These two changes can have negative environmental effects, such as water pollution caused by nitrogen run-off, biodiversity loss due to land-use change, air pollution from fertiliser and the release of greenhouse gases through changes in land use. In the ...

  • Love a lush, green lawn?

    A lush green lawn is lovely to look at, but too much of a good thing can be bad. Often, that beautiful lawn is the result of regular fertilizing. An abundance of nitrogen and other nutrients in natural waterways can cause trouble for aquatic plant and animal life. High levels of nitrogen and phosphorus can cause an overgrowth of algae in the water, which then blocks light from getting to native ...

  • 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 ...
