The FERTIMANURE project will cover both technological and nutrient management approaches:
> The technological side will be addressed with the implementation of 5 innovative & integrated on-farm experimental pilots for nutrient recovery in the most relevant European countries in terms of livestock production (Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands),
> The nutrient management will be addressed through 3 different strategies adapted to mixed and specialised farming systems: Strategy #1 with on-farm production and use of bio-based fertilisers (BBF)(1) , Strategy #2 with on-farm BBF production and centralised tailor-made fertilisers (TMF)(2) production, and Strategy #3 with on-farm TMF production and use.
(1) Bio-based fertilisers (BBF): Fertiliser products derived from renewable biomass-related resources. FERTIMANURE BBF products are fertilisers obtained directly on-farm from the innovative technologies for treating animal slurries and manures.
(2) Tailor-made fertilisers (TMF): Customised fertiliser formulations adapted to specific crop/soil needs. FERTIMANURE TMF will be produced by combining (i) FERTIMANURE BBF and, if necessary, (ii) supplementary products (mineral nutrients, micro and macro elements, biostimulants, etc.) directly provided by the fertiliser companies.
