A highly interdisciplinary project
The combination of knowledge from different scientific disciplines makes the project particularly strong in the development and implementation of a comprehensive mapping concept for targeted nitrogen regulation of agriculture. The project thus combines expertise within both geophysics, hydrogeology, geochemistry, agronomy, modelling, software development, communication, economics and business development.
The project's contribution to society
The project forms the scientific basis for the introduction of the politically decided, more targeted regulation of nitrogen in agriculture. The results of the project will benefit both the farmer and the environment.
The farmer will know where the fertilizer should be used on the field to obtain optimal crop yields in a cost-efficient way. At the same time, the authorities can identify agricultural fields with high or low risk of polluting the aquatic environment thus forming the basis for targeted nitrogen regulation.
MapField can help ensure that Denmark can meet the demands of the EU directives for the aquatic environment, while at the same time creating better production conditions for agriculture.
