AGWAPLAN Side 1 · 22-04-2015 · Lake Ravn catchment Irene Paulsen, Skanderborg municipality and Kjartan Einarson, agricultural advisor
AGWAPLAN Lake Ravn Catchment Total area 5500 ha, approx. 4100 ha farmland Project area marked with red Side 2 · 22-04-2015 · Farmland in the projectarea app. 520 ha ~ ¼ of the total farmland in the catchment
AGWAPLAN The goal for Lake Ravn 1993 -2002: Average load of 1700 kg P/year The modeling indicated a need for a 50 % reduction of the average phosphorus load during the years in which the modeling was done to reach ”good ecological status”. Goal : 50 % of 1700 kg/year = 850 kg P/year max. 2001-2005: Average load approx. 1300 kg P/year 300 kg P reduced by better waste water purification 150 kg P/year to be reduced from the farmland Side 3 · 22-04-2015 ·
AGWAPLAN Side 4 · 22-04-2015 · Goal for Lake Ravn Present P-load 1300 Average total load -300 B etter purification af wastewater -600 Esitmated natural load/farmland -200 from either natural or farmland 150 Surplus = loss from farmland
AGWAPLAN Integrated advisory service before visiting the farmer Enviromental accounting (N and P account) DIS – map GAP – Good Agricultural Practice Manual a, list of possible methods to reduce P-surplus Results of soil-mapping P-index Side 5 · 22-04-2015 ·
AGWAPLAN Soiltype mapping Eksempel på kort Side 6 · 22-04-2015 ·
AGWAPLAN Side 7 · 22-04-2015 · P-index map Bek Low index High index Medium index
AGWAPLAN Integrated advisory service when visiting the farmer Pin-point risk-areas (steep fields, streams close to the fields, use of the fields; history and now) Analyse methods in the GAP-manual – what could be used on this farm Side 8 · 22-04-2015 ·
AGWAPLAN Side 9 · 22-04-2015 · Summary of integrated advisory visits The reduction in potential loss of phosphorus, achieved/obtained at the integrated advisory visits was not enough to fulfill the goal in the catchment area. Achieved in the short term: 3 kg P/year in the project area (*4=12) Achieved in the long term: 17 kg P/year in the project area (*4 =68) Goal: 150 kg P/year can not be reached, even on the long term
AGWAPLAN Side 10 · 22-04-2015 · Catchment - solution The idea: Water from streams in the catchment run through a lake, where phosphorus can settle, before continuing to Lake Ravn. To day: The area is flooded in the wintertime, animals feed on the grass in the summertime The are some valuable meadows in the area
AGWAPLAN Catchment - solution Problems in the catchment solution: More than one owner, with different interests Other than the owners gain from the effect – compensation ? Part of the potential lake-area is used in agricultural farming Part of the meadow-area is home for rare plant-species Side 12 · 22-04-2015 ·
AGWAPLAN Side 13 · 22-04-2015 · Alternative to catchment solution Small sedimentation basins, in connection with drainages from fields with high P-index, before outlet to the stream. Experiment will be established in the spring 2009 and the first results in the spring 2010. This solution is easier, because it only involves one landowner.
