MEACAP: Survey of Technical and Management-based Mitigation Measures in Agriculture 

WP3 D7 - It is the aim of this study to give an overview of technically feasible measures in European agricultural production chains. The report is based on an extensive and critical literature review, data from existing studies and the knowledge of the MEACAP partners and external experts. As a first step, possible mitigation measures are listed and described in detail. The advantages and disadvantages of each technical measure are discussed taking into account the interaction of nutrients and greenhouse gases as well as the estimated environmental sideeffects and feasibility. Finally, an evaluation table is added to each measure that assesses the individual ‘GHG mitigation potential’, ‘technical feasibility’, ‘environmental added value’ and ‘cost effectiveness’ in a qualitative way.
