“Sustainability is no longer about doing less harm. It’s about doing more good.”JOCHEN ZEITZ
One of the most important issues we face as farmers? Nitrogen leaching from farmland…
And while a lot of work has been put into mitigating N’s effects in various ways, the urine patch is the biggest problem. It’s responsible for up to 90% of N leaching – yet until now there’s been no adequate way to control it.
The single most important thing we as an industry can do to reduce N leaching, is to focus on the urine patch.
THE URINE PATCH – HITTING THE TARGET
The animal is often seen as the problem in N leaching, and rule changes at regional council level may necessitate a cap on herd numbers in certain catchments. This, as we know, may be uneconomic. The problem is that urine contains surplus N unable to be utilised by plants, so it is lost through leaching – and up to 90% of the N reaching groundwater originates from the urine patch.
Now, thanks to a unique marriage of science and nature, there’s a solution that revolutionises N management, benefitting both the environment and your production. Nitrogen management with the power of 4.
