New report maps a sustainable future for phosphorus management in Northern Ireland

The Agri-Food and Bioscience Institute have released a major new report on the future sustainable management of phosphorus (P) in Northern Ireland (NI).

The report was a result of a 12 month process, involving extensive engagement with agri-food, environmental and government stakeholders across NI, who were involved in the co-development of a food systems model that was used to identify future scenarios for sustainable P management.

During a workshop in February 2020 stakeholders discussed the barriers and levers to transforming the food system so as to maximise agricultural production while minimising P losses to waterbodies.

In addition to the report we would be very interested in gaining further insights on phosphorus management in NI and on the impact of Covid-19 on the resilience of the NI food system. This questionnaire aims to continue gathering the views of those who have already contributed to the development of the report, as well as to give an opportunity to provide their inputs to those who have not yet been involved. The questionnaire should take 15-20 minutes to complete and will be open for three weeks.
