    Abstract

    The need to reduce nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) losses as well as the (direct and indirect) use of fossil energy on intensive dairy farms in Europe to ecologically acceptable levels requires radical changes of the management of these farms. The objective of the project, (started in 1993) was to develop sustainable dairy farming systems with minimum inputs and losses of nitrogen phosphorus and energy
