Landbouwkundige gevolgen peilverhoging in veenweidegebied = Agricultural consequences of level increase in low moor polder areas

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In this study the effects of a renewed increase of a decreased ditch water level were considered. Increasing the ditch water level leads to decreased land subsidence, but also to less yield (6%) and more damage, or a more difficult grassland management. Damage calculated from earlier studies of 222 euro/ha immediately applies after level increase
