Digitalisation Enables Targeted Fertilising

Agroscope experts are using Smart Farming methods to test how the different areas of a field could be fertilised differently, according to need.

To ensure a high-quality harvest while protecting the environment, we aim to better adapt fertiliser quantities to the needs of the plants, thereby avoiding a nitrogen surplus. The video shows how Agroscope experts are using Smart Farming methods to test how the different areas of a field could be fertilised differently, according to need.

New Guidelines for Fertiliser Application

Fertiliser application in plant production is of vital importance for agricultural practitioners and advisers. With the new ‘Principles of Agricultural Crop Fertilisation in Switzerland’ (GRUD/PRIF 2017), Agroscope has for the first time combined fertilisation recommendations for all crops grown in Switzerland in a single interpretative document.
