Crop nutrition in a changing climate: time to reset or review?
It is ‘more important than ever’ to be up-to-date on the sector’s developments, says Mark Tucker, Sustainability & Business Solutions Manager for Yara which is sponsoring the session. “Fertiliser and crop nutrition is a big expense and growers need to ensure it brings a good return on investment.” That involves considering new and upcoming products in order to choose the best option for their needs, and then getting the best out of those products.”
Upcoming legislation explored during the session which will be chaired by Sir Peter Kendall. Mr Tucker says: “We have new legislation coming next year which covers urea management. It’s important that farmers understand the limitations and opportunities to do things differently.”
Sustainability will also be a theme. “Farmers are increasingly adopting regenerative techniques and are more committed to more sustainable practices. We are seeing low carbon products coming onto the market for the next season including fossil fuel free options and pelletized fertilisers made from food waste.
“I am also keen to remind farmers about new technology particularly digital solutions and the marginal gains they can offer. These options such as the Yara N-Tester BT can reveal extra savings or yield opportunities.”
Being in November CropTec offers the perfect opportunity to pause and learn something new, he concludes. “It’s a great opportunity to explore new ideas with all the conversations that happen at the event, but it is so important to take those ideas forward afterwards.” He advises farmers to make a commitment to follow up the issues or ideas that interest them and to put those into action in their businesses.
