New data suggest resilience of the planet is now at risk

Almost half of the processes that are crucial to maintaining the stability of the planet have become dangerously compromised by human activity. That is the view of an international team of 18 researchers who provide new evidence of significant changes in four of the nine systems which regulate the resilience of the Earth. One of the systems which has been seriously affected is the nitrogen-phosphorus cycle.


New genetic engineering insight could curb need for fertilizers

In the last 30 years, the United States has grown more food using less land and with less environmental strain than ever believed possible. Fertilizers are better, pesticides are better and genetic modification has led to less need for both.


Limus nitrogen management from BASF now available in U.S.

Limus nitrogen management can be blended with urea and UAN fertilizers to protect against volatilization and nitrogen loss, providing more than three weeks of protection. The patented formulation behind Limus nitrogen management combines two active ingredients that are more effective than a single inhibitor on urease enzymes found in soil, resulting in a decrease of nitrogen loss.


Nitrogen knowledge, is yours increasing?

Nitrogen (N) is fundamental to the growth and reproduction of every living creature. It naturally dominates the gases in the air that we breathe (along with oxygen), enables us to grow food—both vegetable and animal—for human nutrition, and it provides many other beneficial uses and resources for society. Fertilizer N makes it possible to provide abundant, safe and nutritious food that sustains the human family; at least half of the people on Earth owe their daily existence to fertilizer N use.
