Abstract Higher crop production normally demands higher nutrient application rates and consequently increased mineral nitrogen use. With food demand for 2030 estimated around 2800 mill. tonnes (t) yr−1, the corresponding mineral N consumption figure is 96 mill. t (78 mill. t yr−1 in 1995/1997). Global-level mineral N losses to the environment from mineral fertilizer use are currently 36 mill. t yr−1, worth USD 11 700 mill. and with adverse environmental impacts. However, innovative fertilizer… Expand
