Worth knowing: Nitrogen and plant growth

events | internal events |

Come to the library and listen to Martin Weih talk about nitrogen and its importance for plant growth and agriculture. The NJ Faculty offers the 20 first attendees a light lunch.

Nitrogen is an essential element for all plants and for all members of the food chain, herbivores as carnivores. Fixation of nitrogen in soil is a challenge and control over the nitrogen cycle is a key tool for enhancing the crop yields and feeding all hungry mouths. The lecture will disclose the processes acting for nitrogen gain and loss in soils and will unveil some approaches to sustainable agriculture.
