Scenarios for mitigation of nitrogen pollution (while maintaining its function as an irreplaceable plant nutrient) are being investigated on the global scale – indicating a potential to cut dangerous pollution by half.
Based on a national Austrian project, the authors describe the experience of interaction aiming to improve nitrogen use efficiencies while involving stakeholders as project partners on equal footing.
