The gross balance surplus of nitrogen per hectare of utilised agricultural area in 2019 was 43,2 kg.


The gross balance surplus of nitrogen per hectare of utilised agricultural area in 2019 was 43,2 kg. Net balance surplus (without nitrogen air emissions) was 11,2 kg per hectare. Net balance surplus remains on the same level as year before. However, this is only at 44 % of 20 year average.

In 2019 the nitrogen input was 75,078 tons (97% of the average of the past 20 years). The nitrogen output was 54,342 tons (112% of the average of the past 20 years); hence the gross balance surplus of nitrogen was 20,736 tons (72% of the average of the past 20 years). The nitrogen air emissions were 15,383 tons (94% of the 20-year average), thus the net balance surplus of nitrogen was 5,383 tons (43% of the 20-year average).


The gross balance surplus of phosphorus per hectare of utilised agricultural area in 2019 was 0.7 kg.

 

The input and output of phosphorus per hectare of utilised agricultural area in 2019 were 19 and 18,4 kg, respectively. Thus, the gross balance surplus of phosphorus per hectare of utilised agricultural area was 0.7 kg. This is the lowest gross balance surplus of phosphorus in 20 years, 20 and 10 year averages are 6,3 kg and 2.8kg per hectare repectively. 

In 2019 the phosphorus input was 9,100 tons (83% of the average of the past 20 years). The phosphorus output was 8,785 tons (112% of the average of the past 20 years). Thus the gross balance surplus of phosphorus was 315 tons or 10% of the average of the past 20 years.
