Food Security What will limit crop yields in the future? Availability and costs of: Nitrogen (N = energy) Phosphorus (P) Potassium (K)  COMMUNITY RESEARCH
Mineral N-fertiliser, energy use and  carbon footprint of food production ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Why and when will Phosphorus  become a  bottleneck  for crop yield?   ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],1  Fantel  et al.  (1985)  Natural resources forum   9 :5-24
Nutrients limiting wheat yield in 1900 and 2000  and predicted 2100 yields without P-fertilisation Estimated wheat yield potential (t ha-1) 3 t ha -1 9 t ha -1 4 t ha -1 Yield potential associated with different nutrients:
Are we using Phosphorus and other mineral fertilisers efficiently?   ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],1   Hirel et al. (2007)  Journal of Experimental Botany  58:  2369-2387
What is the solution/way forward? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
