In Finland compound fertilizers have been supplemented with selenium (Se) since 1984. In 1998, the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry raised the Se supplementation level in fertilizers from 6 to 10 mg Se/kg fertilizer. The most important sources of Se are milk, meat, and milk and meat products, which together cover nearly 70 % of the total Se intake.
