Short summary
Oil palm is the most rapidly expanding tropical perennial crop, which raises environmental concerns, notably related to the use of nitrogen fertilisers and consequent pollution. We tested existing models to estimate N losses in plantations. Results were highly variable and highlighted the remaining challenges to improve the reliability of these models in order to steer towards more sustainable practices.
