In the post-2000 period, nitrogen consumption from mineral fertilisers initially declined. After 2009, consumption more or less stabilised at around 27,500 tonnes, with annual values ranging from 26,300 to 28,612 tonnes. In 2020, the consumption of N from mineral fertilisers was 27,692 tonnes. Thus, the target value for 2020 (less than 28,000 tonnes of N per year) was achieved. The 2020 target was also met for all individual years of the 2016-2020 period.
