Soil nutrient balances England, 2015

These statistics will be released on 21 July 2016 9:30am

The soil nutrient balances estimate the 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.
