Using recovered regional nutrients to make the fertilisation practice more sustainable. That is what the Biobased fertilisers Achterhoek project (in Dutch: Kunstmestvrije Achterhoek) is all about. A more circular practice without negative consequences for the environment and agricultural production. In the coming years, various field trials will be carried out together with farmers, manure processors and other stakeholders to achieve this.
Ten farmers started with the pilot in 2018. Ultimately, a maximum of 150 farmers can participate in the pilot in 2021 and as many land users as possible in the Achterhoek will benefit from this project.
