Seminar about the block database of Swedish Board of Agriculture and other agricultural support data that can be used in research and environmental assessment.
The Swedish Board of Agriculture has data generated in connection with management of agricultural support programs. These include annual farm block data, parcel maps, crop lists, environmental support for e.g. buffer zones and reduced nitrogen leaching, support for ecological production and support for animal health. These data give a picture of how agriculture is managed in Sweden.
To enhance the usage of these data we have made a guide to especially the block and parcel data. We have also held a survey among SLU employees about which of these data they use or reasons why the data have not been used. The work has been performed as a development project financed by the Agricultural Landscapes Environmental Monitoring and Assessment programme.
At this seminar we will present the results from the project. A representative from the Swedish Board of Agriculture will also give a presentation.
