Description

Keith Syers is Vice-President for International Relations, Naresuan University, Phitsanulok, Thailand. Series: Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) Series (Book 65).

Keith Syers is Vice-President for International Relations, Naresuan University, Phitsanulok, Thailand. The Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) was established by the International Council for Science (ICSU) in 1969.

Fertilizer N use in agriculture is the major source of direct and indirect N2O emissions . The loss of N not only increases emissions, but also decreases water quality and decrease N use efficiency (NUE) and cause economic loss. Some problems existing in the fertilizer are pointed out. The developing prospect of glassy fertilizer in the future also is proposed.

Arvin R. Mosier, J. Keith Syers, and John R. Freney. Nitrogen (N) fertilizer has made a substantial contribution to the tripling of global food production over the past 50 years

Arvin R. Nitrogen (N) fertilizer has made a substantial contribution to the tripling of global food production over the past 50 years. Since 1962 annual production of N fertilizer has increased from 1. to 8. Tg (1 Tg 10¹² g) N in 2001 worldwide (FAO 2004)

The focus of the book is regional, emphasizing the need to maintain food and fiber production while minimizing environmental impacts where fertilizer is abundant, and the need to enhance fertilizer utilization in systems where nitrogen is limited.

Nitrogen is an essential element for plant growth and development and a key agricultural input-but in excess it can lead to a host of problems for human and ecological health. Across the globe, distribution of fertilizer nitrogen is very uneven, with some areas subject to nitrogen pollution and others suffering from reduced soil fertility, diminished crop production, and other consequences of inadequate supply.

Nitrogen is an essential element for plant growth and development and a key agricultural input-but in excess it can lead to a host of problems for human and ecological health. Across the globe, distribution of fertilizer nitrogen is very uneven, with some areas subject to nitrogen pollution and others suffering from reduced soil fertility, diminished crop production, and other consequences of inadequate supply. Agriculture and the Nitrogen Cycle provides a global assessment of the role of nitrogen fertilizer in the nitrogen cycle. The focus of the book is regional, emphasizing the need to maintain food and fiber production while minimizing environmental impacts where fertilizer is abundant, and the need to enhance fertilizer utilization in systems where nitrogen is limited. The book is derived from a workshop held by the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) in Kampala, Uganda, that brought together the world's leading scientists to examine and discuss the nitrogen cycle and related problems. It contains an overview chapter that summarizes the group's findings, four chapters on cross-cutting issues, and thirteen background chapters. The book offers a unique synthesis and provides an up-to-date, broad perspective on the issues of nitrogen fertilizer in food production and the interaction of nitrogen and the environment.
