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.
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.
Talking dirty: The conversation between plants and soil
Nitrogen pollution caused by farming practices is a major problem, but University of Melbourne research has discovered an environmentally friendly alternative.
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.
