Description of the measure

Optimised nutrient supply of the plants with main nutrients and micro nutrients

Comments on sustainability

Only optimally nourished plants are stable, healthy and are more resilient to the effects of climate change. An adapted fertilisation avoids leaching of nutrients into ground and surface water, which would affect flora and fauna negatively. GHG and ammonia emissions are reduced and soil organisms can profit from an optimal nutrient supply (including lime). This measure can help to reduce the amount of fertilisation.
