Improving Nutrient Use Efficiency
Improving Nutrient Use Efficiency of all essential nutrients represents one of the most significant opportunities to maximize grower profitability, optimize crop productivity, and minimize the environmental impact of farming.
As the most applied nutrient, nitrogen use in particular has a significant opportunity for improved efficiencies, which in turn can enable crops to better utilize other macronutrient and micronutrients. By improving nitrogen use efficiency, growers have a better return on their input investment, the impact of gaseous and leaching losses is mitigated, soil health is improved, and the global food supply is better secured.
At Yara, we’re committed to being a nutrient use efficiency solution provider for our customers, growers and industry partners.
Through innovative crop nutrition products, deep agronomic knowledge, and the development and integration of digital agronomic decision support tools, Yara works collaboratively with all key stakeholders to maximize the proportion of applied nutrients utilized in crop production and farmer return on their fertilizer investment. At the center of Yara’s efforts and solutions to support nutrient use efficiency are the 4Rs of Nutrient Stewardship.
Supporting Nutrient Use Efficiency with the Right Source
As a global provider of crop nutrition, we understand the potential Yara has to empower the “right source” pillar with high-quality, efficient, and effective fertilizer. Through low-carbon production, homogenous delivery of nutrients, foliar applications, patented micronutrient coating technology and more, we deliver crop nutrition solutions that are proven to maximize yield and grower profitability, while simultaneously supporting nutrient use efficiency and minimizing environmental impact.
Crop Nutrition Solutions to Improve Nutrient Use Efficiency
Soil Health Matters
Healthy soil maintains water management, recycles nutrients, and plays a pivotal role in storing carbon, helping mitigate climate change.
Pillars of Soil Health
Soil health is the foundation for resilient crop production and sustainable farming; we have an urgent need to proactively restore and replenish our soils.
Support Soil Health with Biostimulants
Biostimulants are key to soil health, and they contain substances and microorganisms that stimulate natural processes to improve overall crop health and performance.
