Baltic Deal – Putting Best Agricultural Practices Into Work
Baltic Deal gathers farmers and farmers’ advisory organisations around the Baltic Sea in a unique effort to raise the competence concerning agri-environmental practises and measures. The aim is to support farmers to reduce nutrient losses from farms, with maintained production and competiveness.
The national advisory services play an important role in developing a more sustainable agriculture in the Baltic Sea region. Baltic Deal provides advisory organisations with improved, cost efficient methods and tools of how to support farmers to reduce nutrient losses from farms.
The long-term strategic objective is to reduce agriculture’s contribution of nutrients to the Baltic Sea using a cost-efficient and sustainable approach, which is attractive to farmers.
Baltic Deal is a flagship project of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. It is funded by the Baltic Sea Regional Programme 2007–2013 and by the NEFCO/NIB Baltic Sea Action Plan Trust Fund. The total budget is around 4 million Euros. The project period is 2010 to 2013.
