Environmental and climate friendly management of manure and plant nutrients in agriculture

A resource efficient management of animal manures and other organic residues creates precious plant nutrients and an environmentally friendly agriculture. RISE develops technology and strategies for manure management with the aim to reduce environmental impact from agriculture.

Resource efficient use of plant nutrients

Manure and other organic fertilizer products are resources in crop production and can decrease the dependence of fossil fuels and input of raw materials. RISE conduct applied research and innovations of technology and methodology to increase the value of plant nutrients in manure. Test and evaluation is often conducted in practice on farms.

Agriculture and impact on environment and climate

RISE use methods for measuring GHG and ammonia emissions to evaluate effects of using new technology in agriculture that can decrease impact on climate and environment. RISE evaluate the effect of different measures for manure storage. In crop production RISE test and evaluate technology for spreading manure.

Co operation with stakeholders and academy

RISE work in close co operation with industry and agriculture with focus on their needs. In our workshop we build prototypes which are evaluated in practice on farms. Many projects are multidisciplinary and in co operation with researchers and experienced stakeholders with the aim to find solutions for complex challenges.

Example of work areas

  • GHG and ammonia emissions from animal manures
  • Re-use of nitrogen and phosphorus from sewage sludge and other organic fertilizer products
  • Process technology for organic materials
  • International standards for plant nutrient management
  • Technology for manure storage
  • Technology for manure spreading
  • Biochar linked to manure management
  • Outdoor animal rearing and impact on risk of plant nutrient losses and GHG emissions
  • New additives to manure
  • Evaluation of new processed manure products

Sustainable Manure and Nutrient Management for reduction of nutrient l

Efficient manure and nutrient management in agriculture is beneficial for the environment and for the farmer and is a key aspect of ensuring sustainable food production for the future.

Reducing nitrogen loss from manure with slurry acidification technique

Reducing the loss of nitrogen from agriculture is key to reducing eutrophication of the Baltic Sea. Most of the airborne eutrophication of the Baltic Sea is due to ammonia emissions from livestock manure. Slurry acidification has …

Circular NP - Better nutrient recycling from animal manure

About 50% of the anthropogenic emissions of nitrogen and phosphorus to the Baltic Sea come from Sweden comes from agriculture. Together with BalticWaters2030 and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, RISE hopes to be ab…

Precision cultivation for sustainable food production

As the global population grows, so too does the need for food. With the aid of modern technology, food production can be streamlined without increasing its environmental impact. RISE is working on precision cultivation to sustaina…


Agricultural and horticultural production are the basis for the production of new sustainable and healthy food, animal fodder, energy and materials. Swedish agriculture is among the most sustainable in the world, however the devel…


When it comes to food, taste is the main concern for most of us. However, for the sake of the climate, we also need to make better use of ingredients and by-products, increase our consumption of climate-smart vegetable proteins, a…
