‘Oorlog geen reden om minder te vergroenen’ – Staghouwer wil snel minder kunstmest en kassen op gas – Foodlog

Oorlog geen reden om minder te vergroenen Staghouwer wil

De Europese Unie is ruimschoots zelfvoorzienend in granen, maar lokaal wel afhankelijk van energie en kunstmest om graan te kunnen produceren. De minister is van mening dat verduurzaming juist helpt om het landbouwsysteem weerbaarder te maken tegen invloeden als oorlog. Als voorbeeld wijst hij nadrukkelijk op het gebruik van organische mest in plaats van kunstmest. … Read more
