In 2008 the European Commission released a call for proposals under the workprogramme topic: novel approaches for reducing nitrogen losses. The objective of the programme was to improve uptake of the Nitrates Directive at the farm level. The consortium (Newcastle University, Louis Bolk Institute, Technical University of Madrid, and Aarhus University) responded to the call by developing a project that combined a review of the state of the art in technologies to reduce losses of N to water, with the upgrading of a user-friendly software package for simulating field-scale N dynamics, and the testing of strategies with farmers. N-Toolbox will lay the foundations for improved implementation of water protection policy at the farm level throughout the EU. This document is a short summary of key findings and experiences from the on-farm case study component of the project in Spain, United Kingdom, The Netherlands and Denmark.
