    Nitrogen (N) is the most limiting nutrient for agricultural production, but its overuse is associated with environmental pollution, rising levels of greenhouse gases, and multiple impacts on human and animal health. These effects are strongly influenced by biochemical transformations such as volatilization, leaching, runoff, denitrification and N loss. Half of the nitrogen fertilizer produced worldwide is used to grow three major crops: rice, wheat and maize, with current nitrogen recovery rates of around 30-50%. Continued increases in N fertilizer use, despite declining crop yields, may further increase the environmental and health impacts of residual N. To counteract these effects, NUE efficiency (NUE) is improved through the introduction of efficient agricultural practices, and modern breeding and biotechnology tools to develop N-efficient cultivars require immediate attention is r..
