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
