On Monday 14 of June, 14 – 16 CET was held online the conference “Nutrient-efficient agriculture in the Baltic Sea region”.
Efficient manure and nutrient management in agriculture is beneficial for the environment and farmers, and the only way to secure sustainable food production in the future.
How can agricultural production in the Baltic Sea region be more nutrient-efficient and sustainable? EUSBSR flagship project SuMaNu (Sustainable manure and Nutrient Management for reduction of nutrient loss in the Baltic Sea) has gathered results of different international projects from over the period of 10 years and synthesized them into policy recommendations. The SuMaNu’s final conference was organised together by SuMaNu and Coalition Clean Baltic.
Simultaneous translation English/Russian was provided during the conference.
