Nitrogen Workshop 2018

20th Nitrogen Workshop

Coupling C-N-P-S cycles

 From 25th to 27th June 2018
 Le Couvent des Jacobins, Rennes – France  

 The Nitrogen Workshop is a biennial event bringing together specialists in nitrogen cycling from all over the world. Initiated by Rothamsted Research in the early 1980s, the workshop’s scientific contributions have progressively broadened from N processes in cropping systems and arable soils to more general agricultural and environmental issues linked to the N cycle over a wide range of scales. For this 20th edition, while maintaining the main focus on N, we would like to encourage contributions that consider interactions between the N cycle and C, P and S cycles at these scales which bring with them challenging scientific and environmental issues.

Venue: Rennes is the capital of Brittany, in western France, only 1.5 hours from Paris by train. Brittany is not only a region of great cultural, environmental and touristic interest but the main agricultural region of France for livestock and field vegetable production. N-related issues have been particularly acute there for nearly four decades and the subject of multidisciplinary research and innovative governance. The workshop will be held in the brand-new convention centre, “Le Couvent des Jacobins”, a wonderfully renovated 650-year-old monastery in the medieval heart of the city.

The workshop is organised by INRA (French National Institute for Agricultural Research).

Side event: Nutrient management and decision support systems

27th June 2018
AGROCAMPUS OUEST, 65 rue de Saint Brieuc, Rennes - FRANCE

Just after the workshop, RMT F&E will organise a side event to share knowledge and experience about nutrient management tools used worldwide. Scientific bases and implementation strategies will be compared through oral presentations, posters and demonstrations. The side event is co-organised by the Fertilisation & Environment joint technological network (RMT Fertilisation & Environnement), a group of experts from research, training and advisory organizations, and the COMIFER Association, the French Committee for the Study and Development of sustainable Fertilization.

Le « Nitrogen workshop » est un évènement bisannuel qui rassemble les chercheurs spécialistes de l’azote du monde entier. Initié par le centre de recherche de Rothamsted dans les années 80, les contributions scientifiques de ce colloque qui se sont d’abord focalisées sur les processus du cycle de l’azote se sont progressivement élargies à l’azote dans les systèmes de culture puis aux questions agro-environnementales liées au cycle de l’azote à différentes échelles. Pour cette 20e édition, nous souhaiterions encourager également les contributions considérant les interactions entre le cycle de l’azote et les cycles de C, P et S à ces échelles variées, qui génèrent des défis scientifiques et environnementaux.

Gestion des éléments nutritifs et systèmes d'aide à la décision : à la fin du workshop aura lieu un autre évènement destiné à partager les connaissances et les expériences sur les outils de gestion des nutriments à travers le monde. Les bases scientifiques et le développement des outils seront comparés via des présentations orales, des posters et des démonstrations.
