The Nitrogen Cascade and Implications for Agriculture

C.S. Snyder

Fertilizer nitrogen (N) makes it possible to nourish 40 to 60% of the world’s human family. As the global population has increased, there has been an increased demand for food, feed, fiber, and biofuels. Energy prices, commodity prices, and societal demands all influence the production of commercial crops and the amount of fertilizer N consumed.
