Nitrogenases in Bacteria02/11/2015
Nitrogenases are enzymes found in certain bacteria and archaea; they fix atmospheric nitrogen (N2) typically by catalysing the reaction that reduces dinitrogen to form ammonia.
The Nitrogen Issue22/10/2015
Nitrogen is central to increasing plant yields to feed the world’s growing population, however fertiliser technology has remained much the same for the last 50 years. More than a century ago Fritz Haber figured out a way to fix nitrogen which is abundant in the atmosphere, into ammonia, the active...

The Greener Revolution –26/07/2013
A new nitrogen-fixing technology has been developed which will help transform agriculture. This patented technology enables all crops to take up nitrogen from the atmosphere rather than from expensive and potentially environmentally damaging nitrogen based fertilisers.
The current level of nitrogen fertiliser over use cannot continue.
According to Professor Sir John Beddington, former Chief Scientific Adviser to HM government, food security is a major challenge confronting global agriculture.
