In this course you will learn about the practical integration of farmers, municipalities, farm companies, research, consultancy and legislation in the integrated management of nutrients and agricultural systems. Based on excursions, sustainable management of nutrients to help agriculture reduce environmental impacts are demonstrated via case studies in Western Denmark; a world leading region for integration between intensive farming, livestock production, environmental protection, socio-economy and relationships to rural development. A series of environmental legislations called the Water Environment Plans (WEP) are used as a teaching tool to illustrate these complex issues. The WEP deals, among other things, with the leaching of nutrients from agricultural fields into the aquatic environment. All important aspects of the WEP related to the course will be explored, and you will meet people who are associated with the WEP in different ways. The course is co-organized between the two leading life science Universities and graduate schools of Aarhus (Denmark) and Hokaido (Japan), with professors from both universities as teachers. Moreover, a number of study excursions will be arranged so that you can visit the experimental fields and places where the WEP is implemented in practice. The basic idea of the course is to give you the opportunity to think about and learn how theories are applied in practice. This course is a link between theory and practice.
