A French start-up has unveiled a urine-based fertilizer to limit the use of chemical ones and make use of valuable nutrients lost when we flush. Toopi Organics claims the solution has many environmental benefits and is cheaper for farmers.

Fertiliser production is being reduced across Europe due to high gas prices. This is having a knock-on impact on the availability of carbon dioxide. Meat producers are calling for urgent government intervention.
