A good management of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in agriculture is crucial to maintain a fertile and healthy soil and allow adequate plant growth and development. However, the EU is very leaky in its use of nutrients, resulting in unacceptable health and environmental costs.
Check out our six case studies representing locations with different biophysical conditions and environmental challenges typical for the European agricultural sector. Detailed monitoring at these sites will generate comprehensive data on C, N and P flows, with central coordination to ensure comparability of results.
All the public material produced during the course of the study will be available here!
