Developing organic nitrogen fertilizer to enhance agriculture production

Researchers from Flinders University are investigating organic nitrogen fertilizer to return nitrogen to soil without the need for chemicals.
Currently, the global agricultural industry is facing challenges with deteriorating soil health. In order to combat this, Australian scientists are exploring the manufacture of a sustainable organic nitrogen fertilizer composed of aquatic cyanobacterial biomass, which is suitable for severely damaged areas that are dependent on chemical fertilizers. “Many soils are degraded and becoming less fertile. This challenges agriculture to produce sufficient high-quality food to feed the continuously growing population, which is further exacerbated by climatic instability threatening crop production,” explained Flinders University researcher Associate Professor Kirsten Heimann.
