Livestock manure; production, transport and use; key figures, 1950-2017

Dataset is not available.
This table comprises information about livestock manure production and production of nitrogen and phosphate in manure. It also includes data on excreted nitrogen that evaporates as ammonia and other nitrogen compounds. The use of nitrogen and phosphate in agricultural holdings is calculated from the manure production and the difference between supply and removal of manure. The use of manure is related to the available spreading area based on fertilising standards.
Data available from 1950 to 2017.
Status of the figures:
The 2017 data is provisional; all other data are final.
Changes as of 4 May 2018:
None, this table has been discontinued.
When will new figures be published?

- Nitrogen excretion (N)
- Gaseous nitrogen losses (N)
- Total emissions of ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen (N2) expressed as nitrogen (N).
- Ammonia losses during grazing (N)
- Emissions of ammonia expressed as N during grazing.
Losses of other nitrogen compounds (N2, N2O and NO) are not calculated as grazing losses. These losses occur at a later stage due to nitrification and denitrification processes in the soil and are therefore considered as soil losses.
