    Abstract

    This report provides an overview of fertilisation practices and water quality in 2007 on grassland farms that are allowed to use more livestock manure than the limit set in European legislation (derogation). Data in this report can be used to study the consequences of this derogation on the water quality. The water quality values measured in 2007 reflect agricultural practices in 2006, which was the first year in which the derogation was applied
