In this German article from it is discussed about the agricultural industry’s fertilizer dilemma. The article highlights that it may not be as problematic as initially perceived. It explores alternative perspectives on fertilizers‘ environmental impact, challenging conventional assumptions and providing insights into sustainable farming practices. 

By the way, one way of saving on fertiliser inputs is conducting regular soil analysis. For example, Stenon’s real-time soil analysis technology helped agronomists and farming businesses save up to 20% on N-fertilisers.

In the latest article from MDPI’s Journal of Land you can explore the critical role of soil analysis in advancing sustainable urban development, with a special focus on Kazakhstan. This research sheds light on the significance of understanding soil quality and its impact on green infrastructure integration, offering valuable insights for fostering resilient and eco-friendly urban environments in Kazakhstan and beyond.

This article is a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-knowledge and advances in the sugarcane sector in Brazil. It explores the major environmental impacts of expanding sugarcane plantations, including land use changes and competition with food production. The findings indicate that sugarcane plantation expansion did not lead to direct deforestation, and its growth on degraded pastures actually reduced land competition between food and sugarcane crops. However, challenges like soil compaction and emissions of nitrous oxide need to be addressed through best management practices to further enhance the environmental benefits of sugarcane ethanol production and ensure greater sustainability.
