DK 2A: Targeted regulation of fertilizers to obtain sustainable intensification. Investigating the potential for natural breakdown of pollutants in the subsurface groundwater

Responsible beneficiary: Horsens municipality

The aim is to reduce leaching of nitrates by optimized fertilizer allocation and/or optimized break-down conditions. Data from geophysical and geological mapping of the surface and uppermost 30 m subsurface will be compared to the farmer’s knowhow and data. Hereby detecting vulnerable as well as resilient field areas. A geological model and a groundwater model will be made. Different allocation scenarios as well as climate scenarios will be tested. The output aim is a management system for change in cultivation practice/regulation.
