The exercise helped the farmers understand the benefits of the measures and provides an example of how policymakers could engage with stakeholders under the Water Framework Directive (WFD).

This could be achieved through the appropriate use of fertilisers and greater recovery and recycling of phosphorus from all waste sources.
