High yields in row crops with reduced input and environmental impact
Farmers are currently faced with challenges which are not easy to reconcile at first glance.
On the one hand the costs for fertiliser have risen exponentially and resources are limited. Still, healthy plant growth is the basis for a successful yield and safe food production. At the same time, the protection of the environment has become a key topic of today’s agriculture.
Due to the risk of contaminated groundwater and local over-fertilisation with organic fertilisers, recent European regulations, rules and policies have defined new standards and reduced the kinds of components allowed.
Moreover, farmers are confronted with a decreasing acceptance for fertiliser and crop care products in society.
