Scientific responsible: Professor Carmelo Maucieri, DAFNAE |

Starting date: 01.03.2023 – 28.02.2025

Project description (English)

The aim of Smart-N project is to develop new fertilizer formulations that release nitrogen gradually, with a rhythm able to fit the crop requirements during the growing stages. Indeed, if it is synchronized the rhythms of crop needs and soil availability, can be achieve higher N use efficiency and lower N losses.
