Name: Average N input 2000-2005 compared to 2000 (Difference in kg/ha/yr)
Type: Raster Layer
Geometry Type: null
Description: The map shows the increase/decrease of nitrogen input (kg/ha/yr) to agricultural soils comparing the year 2000 with the trend value 2000-2005 at 1 km resolution. Increase takes place where the trend value is higher than the reference value in 2000. Decrease is mapped when the trend value is lower than the value in 2000.
Nitrogen input includes organic manure application, inorganic fertilizer input, atmospheric deposition and biological fixation. The data comes from the EEA nutrient accounts, developed by EEA and ETC-ULS, and is based on spatial reference data on crop and livestock distribution, yield and livestock statistics, and official conversion factors
