There continues to be a large global effort to achieve better food security in today’s agriculture industry. Given the growing world population, finding a solution to help achieve better security is essential. One method is to speed up crop growth using specialist fertilisers that contain urea. Critically however, urea has a number of negative consequences for the environment. This impact could be mitigated by our Watercress Protein-Fibre, which could be effective in reducing the environmental hazards associated with urea fertilisers.
We are keen to test the effectiveness of our Watercress Protein Fibre on agricultural fertilisers.
Take a look below to see how watercress could be useful in agriculture:
The main problems with urea-based fertilisers are the negative impacts on the environment; they cause gaseous pollutants which increase greenhouse gases, pollute water, cause eutrophication (excessive rich nutrients in a body of water, caused by land run off, creating a dense growth of plants) and lower plants’ nitrogen recovery.
