A new tool to increase the sustainable use of nutrients across the EU.
As part of the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) proposals for 2021-2027, a new tool is being developed to help farmers manage the use of nutrients on their farm. The Farm Sustainability Tool for Nutrients (FaST), proposed in the framework of the Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions (GAECs), aims to facilitate a sustainable use of fertilisers for all farmers in the EU while boosting the digitisation of the agricultural sector.
The CAP proposals include high ambitions for environmental and climate action and the digitisation of the agricultural sector. In line with those objectives, the FaST aims to contribute to the increase of competiveness, climate change action, and environmental care.
