In collaboration with the federal program MasAgro and industry association Centros Impulsor, among others, AB InBev is advancing the use of nitrogen sensors in the Bajio region to improve nitrogen use efficiency. This initiative builds on years of research and field trials that demonstrate the potential of this technology to reduce fertilizer applied on malting barley by 40 percent, while maintaining the same or better yield. In 2014, AB InBev established demonstration trials and distributed sensors to growers and field technicians to trial and demonstrate the benefits of this technology.

Project Results

This project will help increase malt barley profitability for barley growers and combat growing water quality concerns in the region.
