The regulations and their criminal incorporation have been on the topic of agricultural and environmental stipulations in each one nation. additionally, a list was once made up of agricultural mineral poli­ cies within the usa and Canada. stipulations for cattle farming in North the US fluctuate significantly from these in Europe, yet their strategies shed a special mild on ecu regulations. learn has proven that there are nonetheless very huge mineral surpluses in lots of international locations and areas. In either the Netherlands and within the Flemish a part of Belgium, latest difficulties as a result of very excessive degrees of manure construction are structural instead of neighborhood and can't simply be solved by way of delivery of manure to different areas. To a lesser volume. Germany, Denmark and comparatively small elements of France (Brittany) and the uk, nonetheless exceed the norms for an equilibrium fertilization. In Denmark, present difficulties can most likely be solved in the latest legislative framework. The Netherlands, Flanders. numerous German Lander (Nordrhein-Westfalen and Schleswig-Holstein) and Brittany.

Can be explained by the important process of denitrification. In fact, the slow infiltration of water into the subsoil and a groundwater level that is not very deep. create conditions that are favourable for denitrification. 5 gives an even better picture of regional differences in the nitrate inputs to groundwater. This figure indicates the estimated nitrogen concentrations of the water percolating into the subsoil.

The system met a lot of resistance from farmers from the beginning. In the first year, about one-third of the qualifying farmers refused to cooperate. in 1988 this dropped to one-fifth.

Only subsequent changes need to be notified to the Levies Bureau.

The theoretical effect of measures AI-A5 of the Code of good agricultural practice of the Nitrate Directive, assuming that these measures to reduce run-off are implemented, show that for the eastern and southern parts of the country, these effects could be considerable, up to 100 mg/l reduction in nitrate in surface water (Fig. , 1995). , 1995). These figures show that both reduction of manure application and equilibrium fertilisation could have a major impact on the different water qualities in the Netherlands, especially in the southern and eastern parts of the country.
