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.
At the start of 2018, the Biobased fertilisers Achterhoek project was launched. At the start of 2018, the Biobased fertilisers Achterhoek project was launched. Read More
In 2018, 10 farmers in the Achterhoek tested the fertilizers on their land. In 2019, this number will increase until 75 farmers. The effect of the fertilisers on crop growth and soil and water quality is examined by Wageningen University. Read More…
