Methodenverantwortung für den Agrar-Umweltindikator Ammoniakemissionen

Ammonia (NH3) emissions induce significant nitrogen losses for the Swiss agriculture and negtive impacts for the environment. With the model Agrammon NH3 emissions and the the agro-environmental indicator ammonia emissions are calculated.
