Calculation of the agricultural ammonia emissions at the level of individual farms or regions; improvement and upgrading of the model according the the state of the art, supporting stakeholders for the implementation of mitigation measures.
Course of action
The model Agrammon for calculation of the agricultural ammonia emissions at the level of individual farms or regions is run on a Web site. It is continuously adapted according to the state of the art and the needs of the practice. Additionally, the offices concerned and the extension services are supported in order to implement mitigation measures.
