The Growing Point Podcast - Smart nitrogen management with Dr. Mario Tenuta

In this episode of The Growing Point Podcast, we sit down with Dr. Mario Tenuta, the Senior Industrial Research Chair in 4R Nutrient Management and Professor at the University of Manitoba, to discuss strategies for optimizing nitrogen use in farming.

Dr. Tenuta outlines nitrogen losses and the benefits of enhanced efficiency fertilizers, such as urease and nitrification inhibitors.

He provides advice on application techniques and timing, tailored to different soil types and environmental conditions. By integrating the "4R" framework—the right rate, source, timing, and placement—Dr. Tenuta discusses how to balance environmental concerns with the economic realities of modern farming.
