Nitrogen management is on the cusp of becoming a major global policy issue — the international community is gradually acknowledging that the feasibility of an array of environmental, health and food security goals hinges on how humanity manages nitrogen as a resource and a pollutant over the coming decades. As a result, the nitrogen research agenda should expand to consider more policy-relevant questions, such as the power dynamics of the broader food system and the many influences on farmer decision-making. Doing so demands much closer collaboration between the natural and social sciences, from problem formulation to research execution, which requires overcoming a range of ideological, institutional and knowledge barriers.
