Solving the nitrogen problem in agriculture for sustainable food production

Tuesday 12 March: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Sainsbury Laboratory , 47 Bateman Street , CB2 1LR

While developed countries rely heavily on nitrogen fertilisers, nitrogen is the single biggest limiting factor of crop yield for smallholder farmers in Africa. Dr Giles Oldroyd explores how plants in the natural environment enter symbiotic associations with microorganisms to capture nutrients like nitrogen and how we can use these associations to enhance sustainable food security.
