Nitrogen fertilizer was developed by Justus von Liebig around 1850. Gradually he also discovered that there are disadvantages.
After more than 150 years of nitrogen fertilizer, we can no longer say that it is modern to use fertilizer. It is a waning revenue model for the agricultural periphery, the supply companies that work in the agricultural sector.
But the climate debate and the excessive use of fossil fuels in the production of nitrogen fertilizers indicate that this revenue model is at the expense of a lot of suffering, for example in Groningen, in order to keep it close to home, where a lot of damage has been caused. by pumping natural gas.
In 2016, when there was still plenty of gas being pumped in Groningen, the fertilizer industry accounted for a quarter of the purchase of that natural gas.
This means that a gas, N, which is present for 78% in the air surrounding us, is bound in a grain of fertilizer. And then we slap each other on the shoulder, give each other a thumbs up because we are so modern!
Good stewardship is about using but not consuming and not at the expense of the earth and how we leave it for generations to come. It is our duty to always help the planet and people
No farmer has to wait for government action. Change always starts from the bottom up. In this case with the farmer, with you.
When you look at it with an open mind, there are plenty of good alternatives. It requires adapting, thinking differently and new management tactics. But the results can also be there.
The Saladebuffetten have attracted a lot of attention in recent years due to the good drought resistance and rapid regrowth, without the use of fertilizers. They are therefore a good alternative because the growth is much better in times of drought, due to the deep rooting.
They fix organic matter and CO2 deep in the soil. This means they score significantly better in, for example, water storage capacity. Clump-forming grasses retain 50% more moisture than sod-forming grasses.
The nitrogen-binding capacity and the absorption from the soil and the availability of minerals and vitamins is very good, so that Saladebuffetten are a very good alternative that meets the current and future requirements of farming much better.
