Optimising the range of fertilisation offers and advice for farmers in order to increase agronomic efficiency and environmental compliance.

Exchanges on the results of fertiliser trials of general interest:

  • Long-term P and K trials;
  • Other fertiliser materials (by-products, effluents, sludge, new fertiliser materials);
  • Agronomic additives (stimulators, micro-organisms, etc.).

Key issues for fertilisers:

  • Nitrates Directive and vulnerable zones;
  • Carbon footprint and taxes;
  • Product life cycles.

Product quality and applications:

  • Procedures to calibrate products for spreading over large widths (collaboration with IRSTEA, formerly CEMAGREF);
  • Establishment of a technical, economic and environmental argument for fertiliser blends (study conducted by the German University of Wageningen), in collaboration with the Monitoring Commission for Regulations and Techniques and the Economic Commission.
