Fact #18: Ammonia Emissions from Agriculture

Farmers on sugar beat field

Mitigating ammonia volatilization

Ammonia lost to the air is nitrogen lost for plant growth. At the same time, ammonia volatilization is an environmental burden, affecting human health, natural ecosystems and biodiversity.


Mitigating ammonia emissions therefore benefits farmers and society. Solutions are available and the recent European directive on emission ceilings, by consequence, sets national reduction commitments for ammonia.


This Pure Nutrient Fact deals with ammonia emissions from agriculture in general and fertilizer application in particular - and how to mitigate them.
