Research Theme 7

Develop ways to enhance the ability of plants to use available mineral nutrients

  • Develop a mechanism or process to increase nitrogen use efficiency in cereals to approx. 80% (rate applied / rate recovered).
  • Development of natural -based materials to improve nutrients’ uptake, plant growth, and crop yield.
  • Develop materials / process to better capitalize on indigenous soil P and K.
  • Study the advantage of using adjuvants in fertigated fertilizers for feeding different crops in different soil types.
