ARC Linkage awarded to Centre partners

The University of Melbourne team and Incitec Pivot have been awarded an Australian Research Council - Linkage grant to carry out research on enhanced efficiency fertilisers. This project aims to develop new N inhibitory compounds that extend the life of urease and nitrification inhibitors, develop cost-effective controlled-release coatings to better synchronise N supply with crop N demand, and to understand degradation mechanisms of existing inhibitory compounds and their interaction with edaphic and environmental variables.
