Typering extensieve landbouw in Nederland

Agricola, Herman; Schrijver, Raymond; Westerink, Judith; Eldik, Zoe van


This report investigates the size of the extensive farming sector in the Netherlands, in terms of number of farms and in land managed. In addition, the spatial distribution of extensive farms is shown. Extensive farms were selected from the agricultural census data (2016) based on a definition related to norms for nitrogen application, in order to select farms that are likely to create favourable conditions for biodiversity.
