Objectives, impacts and benefits

develop (1) existing plant-soil simulation models in terms of nutrient dynamics; (2) ; (2) capability of existing farm level bio-economic models to incorporate the nutrient dynamics; (3) capability of existing sector level economic models to incorporate farm level adjustments; (4) Finland-specific variants of Representative Agricultural Pathways (RAPs); (5) estimates on the effects of global drivers

Improved model components, new results on pre-crop effects in crop rotation, several papers to be published in peer reviewed journals, new research projects developed and funded outside Luke
