The general aim of the SI-project was decrease energy consumption and environmental impact of agriculture without compromising the production. A concrete aim was to explore possibilities to stop the use of nitrogen fertilizer on grassland cultivation and to halve it in cereal cultivation. The suggested measures were biological nitrogen fixation and increased co-operation between arable and animal farms.
