In the past, a great amount of knowledge on managing choices in the primary sector has been developed by many EU funded scientific projects. However, despite the continuous flow of knowledge about innovative technologies, products, tools and recommendations in the agri-food sector, new or improved managing choices and best practices have not been appropriated by practitioners as expected.
NUTRI-KNOW aims to improve nutrient management practices in agriculture by gathering and sharing knowledge from multiple EIP-AGRI (European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability) Operational Groups from four EU member states. These projects group farmers and other stakeholders to develop and implement innovative solutions to practical problems in the agricultural sector.
NUTRI-KNOW seeks to capitalise this knowledge of the EIP-AGRI OGs in the field of nutrient management through practice-oriented information for farmers and practitioners.
Our goals and impact
NUTRI-KNOW also aims to create a platform and thematic network for collecting and providing information on agriculture. This platform seeks to connect stakeholders, strengthen knowledge flows, and deliver knowledge. The overall goal of the project is to create more value for a sustainable agricultural sector, reduce reliance on imported mineral fertilisers, and improve the lives of farmers through better practices and access to information.
Eventually, the focus is to reduce the dependency on chemical fertilisers, to better use organic manures, and to increase efficient nutrient management.
