Event description: 

RAMIRAN are delighted to announce that ADAS will be hosting a webinar for the RAMIRAN Network at 10:00 (BST) on Tuesday, 15 September.

The webinar will include presentations from internationally recognised scientists widely experienced in the utilisation of organic materials and their impact on air, water and soil. Organic materials are valuable sources of plant-available nutrients and organic matter. However, there are significant challenges to their use in agricultural systems. The need to reduce ammonia emissions and improve water quality and the ambition to achieve net-zero carbon emissions have increased the focus on the management of organic materials. This webinar will provide an excellent platform to highlight the issues and describe practices to maximise nutrient use efficiency, minimise losses to the environment and maximise the soil carbon benefits.

The meeting is free to attend and open to all, however registration is required as places are limited. To register, please follow the event link below.
