ERA GUIDELINES

Highly intensive and specialized agriculture endangers the environment of the Baltic Sea. BERAS Implementation contributes to solve this problem through a systemic shift to Ecological Regenerative Agriculture. Guidelines developed by scientists and advisors provide expertise for Ecological Regenerative Agriculture (ERA) to farmers and advisers as well as for the educational sector and decision makers.

Software Tools help to improve crop rotation planning and nitrogen fluxes at farm level (see below). Stein-Bachinger, Reckling, Granstedt et al.
