Baltic Sea Commitment: Yara demonstrates N-Sensor in Finland

Yara, the Baltic Deal demo farm network, and Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) promoted three N-Sensor demonstrations in Finland during June and July this year. The events were part of Yara's commitment to protect the Baltic Sea and improve agriculture productivity. The events took place at Toivo farm in Halikko, at Levomäki farm in Loimaa and Broby farm in Raasepori.

The first demonstration was at the Ruponen’s farm named Toivo - which means Hope - in southwestern Finland, on June 10. Farmers, partners and the media were invited to learn about best agricultural practices and see how the N-Sensor works in action. 

"The world population will increase by 70 percent by 2050, which means that food production needs to increase markedly, but not at the cost of the environment," said Tero Hemmilä, Yara's Country Manager in Finland when he opened the event, standing at the edge of a field on Olli-Pekka Ruponen's farm in Halikko. 

During the event farmers had an opportunity to familiarize themselves with Yara's N-Sensor precision fertilization technology, as contractor Rabbe Fagerstöm demonstrated the device in the field. 
"The device determines the need of N-fertilizers on the go and applies the right amount of fertilizer exactly where it is needed - this way nitrogen does not accumulate in the soil or leak into waterways," Tero explains. 

Field demos of precision tools are part of Yara’s commitment to improve productivity and environmental performance across the countries at the Baltic rim.
