Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) sensing for organic fertilizers

  • Ineffective management of organic fertilizers in European agriculture results in contamination and eutrophication of water bodies, with nitrates, elevated volatile ammonia emissions threatening biodiversity and increased N2O emissions.


  • Innovative technologies in agriculture can play a major role to tackle the current nutrient flow gaps for N and hence to decrease environmental pressure.


  • NIRS sensing technologies identify nutrients in liquid
