Goals

This project combine plant protection, soil and nutrient balance studies to get more wide-ranging view about crop health and efficient crop production.

Outputs

This study creates a new viewpoint to discussion on nutrient losses and eutrophication, where interactions of all cultivation measures are considered. Higher yield improves input use-efficiency, which is an important aspect of economical results and environmental impact of crop production. Ideal use of plant protection and nutrients would increase yields and decrease nutrient balances, and would decrease environmental effects per hectare and produced yield ton.
