This publication contains the proceedings of a workshop held at the Johnstown Castle, Wexford, Ireland, on 20-22 May, 1980, under the auspices of the Commission of the European Communities as a part of the EEC programme of co-ordination of research on effluents from livestock, and at the request of the Effluents from Livestock Committee. The workshop covered the following topics:
• surface run-off of nitrogen and phosphorus
• nitrogen losses by leaching
• nitrogen losses to the atmosphere
• nitrogen storage in the soil
• nitrogen uptake by the crops
The workshop was structured to ensure a direct comparison between each member country of the experimental results obtained over a three year period, 1977-1979, thus highlighting areas of consensus and uncertainty. Discussion took place on a draft guideline for the landspreading of animal manures - this followed previous discussions in Brussels. Further detailed discussions with individual member countries are planned.
