Ammonia - Friend or Foe? Northumberland

Last updated: 19 Feb 2018

As farmers we are fairly familiar with ammonia in the form of ammonia nitrate and probably spend quite a bit of money on it each year.

This event will look at the issues around how we use ammonia, how we can use it better and the problems associated when it is not doing what we want i.e. fertilising our grass and crops.

Agenda:

  • Dave Towse from CF fertilisers will look at fertiliser product choice and the critical factors in maximising the benefits when you apply your fertilisers

  • A nutritionist (TBC) will discuss animal nutrition highlighting the importance of providing a balanced diet to maximise live weight gain and minimise emissions

  • Stephen Tuer from Stephen Tuer Farms LTD will give a farmer's perspective based on experience visiting pig farms in Denmark and the Netherlands

  • Fraser Hugill from CFE will provide an overview of the issues and potential solutions

  • CSF officers will be on hand to provide an update on grant availability
