The Challenges of Agricultural Diffuse Pollution

Agricultural diffuse pollution is of concern in Spain, as it is in most European countries. The mountainous nature of the Iberian Peninsula and the Spanish islands explain the coexistence of areas little affected by nitrate with others in which this pollution is intense, especially where there is intensive cropping and livestock production, mostly pig farms. The use of chemicals in agriculture and intensive livestock production do not differ from other European countries, although the different climate and soil conditions explain differences in fertilizers and pesticides application rate and chemicals used. The enforcement of different European Directives poses specific technical and also administrative coordination problems due to the different authorities responsible for water resources and the environment at national and regional level. Many aquifers and the related springs and surface watercourses will not reach the good quantitative and chemical status by 2015 required by the European Water Framework Directive.
