Mission

The Hub’s mission is to support sustainable intensification, farm profitability, environmental quality and soil health by developing the next generation of high efficiency fertilizers.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Generating new knowledge about soil and plant interactions to inform farming practices and the development and application of new fertilisers
  • Creating new smart fertilisers designed to reduce the significant losses of nitrogen to the environment associated with conventional fertilisation
  • Working with industry experts, farmers and agribusinesses to develop practical tools to support farmers in making decisions about using the new smart fertilisers
  • Developing evidence based estimates of the social (environmental and health) costs of nitrogen losses and the social benefits of new fertilizers to inform government policy, industry and the community
