Soil nutrient balances UK provisional estimates for 2012


Soil nutrient balances provide a method for estimating the annual nutrient loadings of nitrogen and  phosphorus to agricultural soils. They give an indication of the potential risk associated with losses of  nutrients to the environment; losses which can impact on air and water quality and on climate change. The  nutrient balances are used as a high level indicator of farming’s pressure on the environment and of how  that pressure is changing over time. The balances do not estimate the actual losses of nutrients to the environment, but significant nutrient surpluses are directly linked with losses to the environment.
