Monitoring the dissemination of innovations

In this project the extent of the dissemination of innovative measures is monitored.

The 4th Action Programme of the Nitrate Directive indicates that a considerable effort is needed to reduce the losses of nitrogen and phosphorus to the environment. Especially in the regions with sandy soils and löss innovative measures should be implemented to meet the requirements. A program is started to stimulate the implementation of innovative technologies by the agricultural sectors. It is however not known to what extent the sectors are able to implement or use these innovative measures.
