In 1988, the Swedish Parliament decided on a special action programme for improving the environmental performance of agriculture.
This was a result of the attention that problems with eutrophication attracted.
At that time, the measures in the action programme mostly concerned areas with intensive agriculture and coastal areas.
They focused on adapting plant nutrient supply to its specific need, on limiting pollution and on increasing the share of land under green cover in winter.
The action programme has since been expanded to include measures for reducing ammonia losses from agriculture as well, and it has been revised and updated twice.
The agricultural measures based on the action programme contribute both to reach the goals decided in Sweden, like the environmental quality objectives, and to reach international agreements and directives.
