Project: Emission prevention in agriculture by the application of nutrientbalances.

project duration
01-APR-99 – 30-APR-01
The aim of the research project is to propose nutrient balances at farmlevel to prevent emissions of nutrients to the environment. These balances have to be proposed for cattle, pig and chicken farms and for the nutrients N, P and K. After a thorough scientific evaluation of the possibilities of such balances, a quantification of nutrient surpluses on the different types of farms will be done as well as a calculation of the impact of these surpluses on the environment. At last, an administrative and technical evaluation of the possibilities of the use of nutrient balances will be made.
