Smart fertilisers for food security
Fertilisers that increase nitrogen efficiency may boost crop productivity, while reducing farm costs and environmental harm say University of Melbourne experts.
Cutting agricultural emissions will reduce air pollution and save lives
Reducing ammonia emissions from agriculture will substantially benefit global health, and at a low cost shows new research led by the University of Melbourne.
Five priorities for managing nitrogen pollution
Nitrogen is essential for life on Earth but excess can damage the environment. University of Melbourne researchers recommend five areas of focus for management.
We can have urbanisation and enough to eat
Changing our diet and food choices can balance the impact of our rapid urbanisation on food security say agricultural experts at the University of Melbourne.
What you need to know about nitrogen pollution
A new measurement from University of Melbourne researchers could more accurately identify places at risk of damaging levels of nitrogen pollution.
Taking steps to cut your nitrogen footprint
New research from University of Melbourne experts has calculated the 'nitrogen footprint' of the University - and come up with the best ways to reduce it.
Small farms and China’s reliance on agricultural chemicals
University of Melbourne research has found China's overuse of agricultural chemicals like fertilisers and pesticides is linked to its number of small farms.
The power of recycled poo
A study, led by the University of Melbourne, finds that animal poo does a better job than synthetic fertilisers for many crops and reduces nitrogen pollution.
Save our soils: Why dirt matters
Soil health is vital for human nutrition and the environment, but we manage it poorly; around two thirds of Australian agricultural land has unhealthy soil.
Nitrogen pollution: Forgotten element of climate change
Carbon dioxide is the headline greenhouse gas, but to mitigate climate change, we will need to tackle nitrogen emissions with technology, policy and our diet.
