Agriculture must use help from Mother Nature

Nature can give a helping hand to avoid nitrogen loss from agriculture to the aquatic environment. This was one of several important points at an international workshop regarding landscape filters organized by Aarhus University.

Development of mini-wetlands with biofilters enters new phase

New mini-wetlands with biofilters will be established in the course of the summer and autumn of 2017 with the aim of generating more knowledge and experience regarding this particular measure against nitrogen loss to the aquatic environment.

Several factors must be taken into consideration when calculating which landscape filter system has the best cost efficiency. Photo: Colourbox
