Concepts for Mitigating Veterinary Pharmaceutical Inputs from Agriculture into the Environment

August 2015 to March 2016
Veterinary pharmaceuticals (VETs) and their metabolites are increasingly becoming the focus of scientific and public debate as environmental contaminants. During the project, an overview of research results, measures and concepts to reduce the inputs of veterinary pharmaceuticals into the environment was compiled and a technical brochure was written. The results are summarised in the handbook "Concepts for Mitigating Veterinary Pharmaceutical Inputs from Agriculture into the Environment." Read more

The "Invisible" Subsoil

An Exploratory View of Societal Acceptance of Subsoil Management in Germany
Hidden beneath the humus-rich topsoil, the subsoil usually receives little attention in agricultural practice. Yet, plants cover between 10 and 80% of their nutrient and water needs from subsoils. Measures to improve the subsoil could help in bridging droughts and stabilising yields. But how do farmers and other societal actors perceive different methods for subsoil management? Ecologic Institutes's Ana Frelih-Larsen, Mandy Hinzmann and Sophie Ittner published the first exploratory research results on the societal acceptance of subsoil management in the open access journal Sustainability.

Cooperative Water Protection and their Impact on Groundwater Quality

March 2017 to November 2019
About a quarter of German groundwater exceeds the nitrate limit of the European Union for drinking water. A substantial reduction of inputs can only be achieved through measures in agriculture. The study examines existing drinking water cooperations between farmers and drinking water suppliers in water conservation areas in North Rhine-Westphalia. In doing so, positive approaches should be harnessed for a purposeful policy.Read more
