Description

Main research question/goal

NUTRIMAN is a Nitrogen and Phosphorus Thematic network compiling knowledge of “ready-for-practice” recovered bio-based fertiliser product applications, practices and technologies, connecting applied science and industrial practice, for the interest and benefit of agricultural practitioners. The objective of NUTRIMAN is to improve the exploitation of the ready-for-practice cases of N/P nutrient management/recovery potential that are not yet sufficiently known by practitioners.


Research approach

It is essential to spread knowledge and information about the insufficiently exploited N/P recovery innovations (technologies, products, practices) to agricultural practitioners. Our action will create new opportunities for farmers to develop connections between applied research with practically useful results and farming practice in the priority area of nutrient management and nutrient recovery. NUTRIMAN takes a bottom-up approach to identify incentives and bottlenecks for adoption and to prioritise technologies/products that will ensure greater willingness to utilise innovations and improve multiplier effects. 


Relevance/Valorisation

Agriculture and food industry have a high dependence on resources in their production and strive for long-term sustainability. In this context, there is an urgent need to optimise resource use and smooth the transition to a knowledge-driven agriculture. The NUTRIMAN project results will be effectively disseminated and exploited through a multilingual web platform, multilingual abstracts in the EIP-AGRI format and best practice field demonstrations for farmers. As a result, this action contributes to the successful deployment of the vast reservoir of existing scientific/practical knowledge on the N/P recovery theme.
