Reducing reliance on nitrogen fertilizers with biological nitrogen fixation

20:00 EDT 25 Mar 2020 | AAAS

(American Phytopathological Society) Crop yields have increased substantially over the past decades, occurring alongside the increasing use of nitrogen fertilizer. While nitrogen fertilizer benefits crop growth, it has negative effects on the environment and climate, as it requires a great amount of energy to produce. Many scientists are seeking ways to develop more sustainable practices that maintain high crop yields with reduced inputs.
