Agricultural landscape programme

Assessing environmental quality in the agricultural landscape

The programme is intended to provide an overall picture of environmental quality in the agricultural landscape. The results will be used to improve monitoring for the environmental quality objective A Varied Agricultural Landscape, and will also yield data for evaluating the effects of the EU agricultural policy (environmental impacts and payments), as well as the EU Habitats Directive.

Åke Berg, programme coordinator:

We need to use long-term data, and create good environmental indicators, to be able to evaluate if agricultural policy, environmental subsidies and conservation measures are helping to create a varied agricultural landscape valuable for production, biodiversity and cultural heritage. The national and regional programmes for monitoring of landscapes and biotopes reinforce SLU's role in monitoring of agricultural landscapes. The next step is to combine these data with data for biodiversity, ground conditions and other factors for the agricutural landscape as a whole.”
