Abstract

Models are potentially useful tools for both growers and policy makers, to guide the nitrogen fertilization in order to reconcile environmental and productive issues. This research, funded by the regional government of Emilia-Romagna and Crpv in view of testing the regional nitrogen application policies for a more sustainable crop production, aims at the extensive testing of water balance and nitrogen transport models in actual cropping conditions in a rather large area of the eastern Po river plain.
