Description of the measure

Locally applied fertiliser such as Cultan-Fertiliser ensures an efficient nutrition of the plants in dry regions

Comments on sustainability

In dry years or regions, the locally applied fertilizer has the advantage that there is no need for water to dissolve the nitrogen. It is placed directly in the root zone. Less nitrogen is washed out, less ammonia is emitted and there is therefore no negative effect on flora and fauna. One challenge could be the investment in the technique or finding a suitable subcontractor.
