From Field to Future: Cutting Emissions Without Cutting Corners
We delve into the evidence supporting the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship and their role in reducing emissions and improving nitrogen use efficiency.
The conversation covers the importance of finding a balance between reducing emissions and maintaining high crop yields, the use of nitrification inhibitors to reduce nitrous oxide emissions, and the need to consider all 4Rs (rate, source, timing, and placement) in fertilizer management. Dr. Bruulsema highlights the economic benefits for farmers and the collaborative efforts between the government and industry to support the adoption of sustainable practices. The episode concludes with a call for continued collaboration and innovation to achieve lasting gains in nutrient stewardship.
