The Swedish Institute is financing a new project, called “Baltic Deal Bridge”, to continue what was built in the Baltic Deal project. This means that the joint effort for less nutrients running of from farms around the Baltic Sea will continue. A warm welcom to all new partners.
The established platform for knowledge exchange is now even wider, including 24 partners from 10 countries. Three areas will be in focus: Advanced nutrient management including precision farming and recycling, Wetlands and drainage and Particularly cost-efficient measures and investments.
The project aim is to maintain and strengthen the established platform for knowledge exchange as well as the established demonstration farm network, to reduce losses of nutrients in a cost-efficient and sustainable way. The project contains a certain number of activities as meetings and conferences as well as evaluations and reports related to the focus areas.
The Federation of Swedish Farmers is lead partner in the project. The total budget is 340 000 euros and the project will run for three years, 2014-2016.
The first project meeting is held in Riga 15-16 April 2014.
