Abstract: The Indicator Database for European Agriculture (IDEAg) has been developed to provide a means of assessing consistently the impact of agricultural activities on the environment in Europe. It assembles data from four models running at high spatial resolution for the countries in the European Union (EU27): CAPRI-SPAT, MITERRA-CAPRI, DNDC-EUROPE and the DNDC-CAPRI meta-model. IDEAg combines the strength of these models while offering new possibilities for calculating marginal emission factors or integrating agriculture with other economic sectors. We discuss recent applications of the IDEAg, including the development of stratified N2O emission factors and nitrogen budgets, and the assessment of the intensification effect of growing crops for the production of biofuels.
