IFS is running a series of free webinars during Spring 2020

Three of the authors who were due to present at our postponed Technical Conference have agreed to ‘re-purpose’ their presentations into webinars. Accordingly we are pleased to announce the three webinars below. These are free to attend for both Society Members and non-members. Where there are written papers, pdf copies of these will be available for free to Members, while non-Member attendees can buy them at a 50% discount.

In addition, there will be a fourth webinar covering new work on the acidification of slurry and digestate. More below.

Please contact the Society Secretary (secretary@fertiliser-society.org , if the link does not work) to register for the webinar(s) you would like to attend, to obtain access information.

Impacts of acidification on ammonia emissions and crop available N supply following slurry and digestate applications

by John Williams, Principal Soil Scientist, ADAS.

This webinar will present results data from the first year of a project looking at this important and topical issue. It will also cover issues relating to the UK’s Clean Air Strategy and some of the challenges that livestock producers and anaerobic digestion plant operators are likely to face in relation to achieving future targets for ammonia reduction. As such it will be relevant to a wide range of countries.
