Project description

The OG RENURE wants to test ammonium salts from stripping-scrubbing in real farming conditions in order to prepare the roll out the use of these fertilizers to the rest of the agricultural and horticultural sector after the project.

This project therefore investigates how these products can be applied by the farmer in practice, as well as what the crop yield and nitrate residue are in comparison with conventional fertilization.

Ghent University is investigating what impact a broader roll-out of the use of ammonium salts will have: type and number of farms, the impact on nutrient flows in Flanders and the economic benefits.
