Samassa Vedessä - Shared waters

Goal of the project is to produce science-based information for strengthening the knowledge base for agricultural water protection and nutrient load regulation. We will examine the nutrient load from agriculture from the points of view of science, society, law and production. The three-year study will involve dialogue with stakeholders and farmers in all stages.

The project is cordinated by SYKE (Dos. Petri Ekholm).
