National Responses to the EC Nitrate Policy
This paper reviews the implementation of EU nitrate policy in seven member states of the European Union. The countries reviewed are Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. It summarizes the main features of the EU Nitrate Directive, and examines the national nitrate policies formulated by the seven Member States. The analysis shows substantial differences in the interpretation of the directive, and in the size of the affected agricultural area in each country. This discrepancy raises the question of finding a platform for future EU nitrate and nutrient policy.
