Holland: measure to limit ammonia emissions does not work

In Holland a measure proposed by the government to limit ammonia emissions will not go ahead. The government wanted the slurry manure to be diluted with water when applying to sandy soils by using a slurry injector. The idea was that the diluted manure would be absorbed more quickly by the soil, resulting in less ammonia escaping. However, practical research shows that diluting with water does not lower the emission of nitrogen on sandy soils.
