On November 2022, Soltub as representative of the Hungarian National Task Force (NTF), organised an online meeting to present the results of the Hungarian and international projects and initiatives in nutrient recycling focusing mostly on the available technologies and products which can serve in the closing of the CNP nutrient cycles and reduce the GHG emissions in the plant cropping, animal husbandry and mixed farming systems.
Furthermore, the webinar served as a forum in developing partnership for sustaining the national organisations and authorities facing the new energy crises and the increasing production prices of fertilizers after 2021.
In the frame of the national projects and activities, the discussion was focused on the precision farming practices as the application of the drone technologies in plants fertilisation (AgriDron Ltd.), the utilisation of sensor technologies in plant cropping systems (Agrosense Ltd.) and the utilisation of bio-based fertilizer products in precision technologies (Agrogeo Ltd.). The utilisation of organic sourced fertilizers in organic crops nutrition was presented by ÖMKI and the developments in the application of the new fertilizers regulation 1069/2019 EC in Hungary by the national authority NEBIH.
The achieved results in international project referred to closing the carbon- nitrogen-phosphorous loops (H2020 Nutri2Cycle), the field experiments with bio-based products (H2020 Lex4bio), the sustainable and climate friendly soil management practices (EJP SOIL Joint Program) and the European initiatives for environmental friendly nutrition practices (H2020 TUDI).

In the second part of the online meeting the 24 participants held an open discussion to set up the Hungarian cluster in nutrient management which can be a platform sharing results of the national and international projects, studies, technologies and good practices with Hungarian stakeholders, specifically with farmers. The cluster will provide support to decision makers such as the ministry of agriculture and the ministry of innovation, but it will also help build partnership with other national and international clusters and supporting national joint programs in nutrient management.
