Nutrient Use Efficiency (NUE™)
NUE is a measure of how well plants use available mineral nutrients. With tight margins, high input costs and unpredictable weather patterns, efficiency optimization is absolutely critical. Farmers need to pay close attention to enhancing soil fertilizer efficiency, and focusing on plant uptake and utilization using enhanced efficiency fertilizer (EEF) technologies that improve crop yields and quality by limiting nutrient loss by creating a nutrient use efficiency (NUE) plan.

NUE™ University is an online learning platform for farmers, crop advisers and retailers to learn about nutrient use efficiency (NUE) practices and technology, and how they can increase NUE, yield, crop quality and ROI for agricultural production.
For members of Alliance Ag & Grain, NUE University provides on demand learning modules on nutrient use efficiency technologies and NUE education from accredited university researchers, well-known agronomists, top crop consultants and many experts and authorities in agricultural production. Many NUE University learning courses offer Certified Crop Advisor CEU.
