The NUTRIMAN is a Nitrogen and Phosphorus Thematic network compiling knowledge ready for practice for such recovered bio-based fertiliser product applications, practices and technologies, interconnecting applied science and industrial practice, for the user interest and benefits of the agricultural practitioners. NUTRIMAN is focusing on the most urgent needs of organic and low input farming specific agricultural production sectors.

Setting up NUTRIMAN network ensures that when this EU law harmonization is reaching legal adaptation status, as estimated by 2018-2020, the agricultural practitioners already know, have tried and are applying such recovered products in practice.

The project will focus on the exploitation of the N/P nutrient management and recovery potential for the ready for practice cases not sufficiently known by practitioners and make integrated coherence in this strategic priority.

This will contribute to large scale take up of innovative fertilisers from recovered Nitrogen and Phosphorus produced from un-exploited resources of domestic organic or secondary raw materials in line with the circular economy model. The aim is to obtain fertilisers which can be used by agricultural practitioners under market competitive conditions, being efficient from an economic point of view, but also sustainable for the environment.

NUTRIMAN will contribute to replace the old ‘linear’ model of technology transfer (from scientists to the users) in agriculture by an interactive model of systems which integrates knowledge production, adaptation, advice and education between the various actors.
