Farming Better For Phosphorus’s Sake

Think Sustainability

Episode 160

How do we sustainably use phosphorus fertiliser? A large amount of phosphate rock-a finite resource used for fertiliser- is being wasted across the supply chain, with very little being recycled or recovered.

In this episode, we investigate the methods to manage phosphorus supply sustainably from using fertiliser efficiently to changing our diets.
