Summary

The purpose of the tool is to help farmers in estimating the N content of forages based on the percentage of legumes, the management and harvesting method. It is based on an Excell file that uses two databases containing information on site specific forages.
It is a Decision Support Tool (DSS) in 2 languages, easy and fast to use. It is complemented by other tools (on crop rotation, legume content estimation) available on the web page and by other information materials.
To go to the tool please go to "Software Tools Ökolandbau" and then "Stickstoff-SaldoRechner".
To Switch to the German version, go to the top of the page and click on "DE".
