dc.description.abstractThis report describes the estimation of the spatialised nutrient inputs from agriculture and nutrient surplus at the soil surface. Statistical agricultural data from the Farm Structure Survey (FSS) were linked to the spatial information of the CORINE Land Cover 2000 map, producing a European map (EU15) of land use including the crop spatial distribution, consistent with the official crops areas reported by FSS. Nitrogen and phosphorus inputs on soils originating from agriculture were estimated for EU15, and then spatialised based on the land use map, providing European maps of nitrogen and phosphorus mineral fertiliser input, manure application and gross balance at 10 km2 resolution. These maps allow the assessment of nutrient pressures originating from agriculture and constitute a reliable data layer for risk analysis and for process-based models, addressing water and soil qualityen_GB
