Focus on Nutrients is the largest single undertaking in Sweden to reduce losses of nutrients to air and water from livestock and crop production. The project also focuses on the safe use of crop protection products. Focus on Nutrients is a joint venture between The Swedish Board of Agriculture, The County Administration Boards, The Federation of Swedish Farmers and a number of companies in the farming business.
In order to fulfill these objectives the project focuses on increasing nutrient management efficiency by increasing awareness and knowledge. As the farmer is atfocus, the core of the project is centered around education and individual on-farm advisory visits.
