The recommendations for fertilization of grassland and maize are published by the Commission on Fertilization of Grassland and Fodder crops. The recommendations refer to, amongst others, N rates and are specified for different growing conditions, such as soil type, N release in soil by mineralisation and hydrology (water availability).

The Agro-Meteorological Service portal is run by NIBIO in collaboration with the Norwegian met office, and the main task is to provide meteorological data for better management of climate risks in important agricultural and horticultural districts. Country of use: NO.
(Annual Nutrient Cycle Assessment) gives a farm specific view of nutrient inputs and outputs and the emissions to the environment; N and P surpluses to the soil (surpluses resulting from fertilizer use and plant uptake), NO3 leaching to upper groundwater and NH3 emissions to the air. ANCA does not include measures, but farm advisors use the results to discuss possible improvements (and thus possible measures) for nutrient efficiency with the farmer. When measures are implemented, ANCA can be used as a monitoring tool to evaluate the effects on the emissions and nutrient use efficiency. Although ANCA was developed to support at farm level, results on a regional scale are used by regional policy makers to estimate possible and feasible reductions of N and P surpluses in catchments.
