BedrijfsWaterWijzer (BWW)

(Farm Water Management Guide) indicates risks on 7 main water management aspects for specific dairy farms and suggests measures for improvement. The aspects are 1) runoff form the farmyard, 2) water retention in the soil (draught prevention), 3) wetness (damage crops), 4) NO3 leaching to groundwater, 5) runoff and drainage of N & P to local surface waters, 6) drinking water for cattle and 7) management of local surface waters (ditches) and recycling of grass clippings and dredging. The indicated risks are scored in a qualitative way (Good, Moderate, Insufficient, bad). BWW can support farmers to evaluate the effect of measures and, although not directly, indicates measures to improve the water related risks. Country of use: NL.
