Neutral

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per unit of milk production are characterized by large fluctuations from year to year, mainly affected by feed production conditions. In the period 2005−2018 there was no clear reduction trend (despite a clear trend over the longer period 1985−2018). Values after 2014 show a favourable trend towards the target value (0.786 kg CO2 equivalent in 2020).

Neutral

In the period after 2005, the consumption of nitrogen from mineral fertilizers has on average been slightly below the target value for 2020 (28,000 t N/year). In the period up to 2012, nitrogen consumption declined, after which it increased again in 2014 and 2015, and again declined in the period 2016–2018. The increased consumption in 2014 and 2015 is attributed to extremely favourable harvests and thus the increased need of agricultural plants for nitrogen.

Neutral

In the period from 2005 to 2018, the gross nitrogen budget ranged from 43 to 70 kg per ha, with a minor reduction trend. The target value for 2020 is 53 kg N/ha. On average over the past five years this value has been achieved. Achieving the target will largely depend on farmers' interest in accepting organic farming and the requirements of the agri-environment-climate payments measures, as well as on the performance of the agricultural education system and public agricultural advisory services.

Good

The land area in the organic farming measure is growing faster than planned in the Operational Programme for Reducing GHG Emissions until 2020 (OP GHG). The target value for 2020 is 44,000 ha. It should be emphasized that the objectives of the 2014−2020 Rural Development Programme are more ambitious (55,000 ha) and that it would also make sense to correct the objectives of the OP GHG.

Good

Areas of fields and gardens in measures that require fertilization based on rapid soil or plant tests have significantly exceeded the target value set by the 2014–2020 Rural Development Programme.
