We wish to thank all persons that made the 17th International Nitrogen Workshop possible. Special thanks to the organisers of the 16th Nitrogen workshop who assisted with the early planning and advised on their lessons learnt. To the invited speakers for their insightful paper contributions. To all the organisations that contributed financially to the workshop. A special word of thanks to the staff and students of Teagasc and AFBI for their valuable assistance. And finally to the participants of the Workshop for their contributions to making the 17th International Nitrogen Workshop successful.

Dear Workshop Participant, On behalf of the organising committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 17th International Nitrogen Workshop “iNNovations for sustainable use of nitrogen resources”, held in the unique Wexford Opera house, Ireland from 26th to 29th June 2012. The workshop is jointly organised between Teagasc (the Irish Agriculture Food and Development Authority) and AFBI (Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute, Northern Ireland).
The first Nitrogen Workshop was in 1982 at Rothamsted, u.K. as a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and views on methodologies to investigate N transformations in agricultural systems. Over the past 30 years the workshop has become an international event focusing on a wide range of nitrogen topics including improving nitrogen use efficiency and responding to policies such as the Nitrates and Water Framework Directives.
The 17th International Nitrogen Workshop will focus on iNNovations for sustainable use of nitrogen resources and will cover new breakthroughs in science, knowledge transfer and management of nitrogen resources.
The workshop provides a platform to discuss the nitrogen challenges and solutions for sustainable food
production and is divided into four sessions:
• Advances in understanding N-flows and Transformations
• A holistic Approach to understanding Impacts of Nitrogen on the Environment
• Global Perspectives on Nitrogen and Food Security
• Knowledge Transfer
Each of the N workshop sessions will address a central pertinent question:
• Where is the missing nitrogen?
• Which mitigation measures are synergistic/environmentally optimal?
• Will the cost of nitrogen threaten food security in the post-oil era?
• how can we bridge the gap between ever-more-detailed and narrow research and the knowledge requirements of our stakeholders?
A total of 31 oral papers and 196 poster papers are being presented at the workshop from 804 authors in 31 countries across 4 continents. The organising committee thank all authors for their written contributions to the proceedings and we look forward to your intellectual contribution through out the workshop. The financial support from all our sponsor organisations is gratefully acknowledged. We hope that you really enjoy both the Workshop and Wexford.
