This report provides an overview of fertilisation practices in 2009 and of water quality in 2009 and 2010 on grassland farms that are allowed to use more animal manure than the limit set in the European Nitrates Directive (derogation). Data from this research can be used to study the consequences for the water quality. The water quality values measured in 2009 reflect agricultural practices in 2008, which was the third year in which the derogation was applied. The water quality values measured in 2010 reflect the consequences of agricultural practices in 2009.
