N2 - In this study, quantitative models of theagricultural sector and nutrient transport and cycling areused to analyse the impacts in the Baltic Sea of replacingthe current Greening measures of the EU’s CommonAgricultural Policy with a package of investments inmanure handling. The investments aim at improvingnutrient utilization and reducing nitrogen leaching, basedon the assumption that lagging farms and regions can catchup with observed good practice. Our results indicate thatsuch investments could reduce nitrogen surpluses inagriculture by 18% and nitrogen concentrations in theBaltic Sea by 1 to 9% depending on the basin. TheGreening measures, in contrast, are found to actuallyincrease nitrogen leaching.
