Reducing nutrient emissions from agriculture

The objective of reducing nutrient emissions is at odds with other objectives that have been set in agricultural policy. In practice, production and income objectives have been given greater weight than environmental objectives. The present audit sought to determine whether clearly lower nutrient emissions can be achieved by taking advantage of the possibilities available in national agriculture policy and whether the means exist to reach the target set in the Government resolution. This document contains a summary of the main results of the audit. The entire audit report is available only in Finnish.
