Agricultural news spanning the globe

In our Reading Tips we share tips for increasing efficiency and sustainability for wheat growers and useful information on Nitrogen surplus for German farmers.

Such an important topic as Nitrogen surplus is very actual for the farming community in Germany. Although there has been a positive trend in reducing nitrogen surplus in German agriculture, there is still a need to implement more sustainability in farming practices. Precise soil analysis is essential for sustainable farming, and this is where Stenon’s technology comes into play. Contact us to learn more about how our solution can help optimize nitrogen application inputs and improve overall sustainability.

This article from MDPI covers the importance of nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in sustainable agriculture, particularly relevant to Kazakhstan’s agricultural practices. It highlights how optimizing nitrogen use can enhance crop productivity and reduce environmental impact, which is crucial for the region’s agricultural sustainability. With Stenon’s real-time soil analysis solution agriculture businesses in Kazakhstan and North Kyrgyzstan are now equipped with the technology to obtain nitrogen data in real-time and can now improve the overall efficiency of their operation.

Nitrogen plays a key role in wheat production. This article in Portuguese gives a short overview of the overall N-cycle, emphasizes the signs of nitrogen deficiency in the crop, and shares common recommendations regarding fertilizer application. The main advantage of Stenon’s solution is that growers don’t have to wait until they can visually observe nitrogen deficiency in the wheat. With the ability to conduct N-analysis in real-time and at any given moment, such situations can be simply avoided, and overall crop production will not be affected by nitrogen deficiency. Actionable insights are key in efficient agricultural business. If you are a wheat grower in Brazil, check out our case study video where we share how you can save up to BRL 30,000 with the help of Stenon’s technology.
