The Zala study site, Hungary
Lake Balaton is the largest shallow lake in Middle Europe. The lake and surrounding area are very important natural (ecological, water and landscape) resources and this is one of the major areas for water-related recreational tourism in Europe.
Soil erosion leads to eutrophication of the lake which is an environmental concern. To protect the lake measures are taken against erosion. Farming practices include the use of grass strips between crop rows, contour tillage, minimum tillage, cover crop and soil cover with leguminous crop.
Appropriate and moderate use of fertilizers is also important. Special crop rotations, liquid manure, farmyard manure, green manure and the use of microbial soil conditioners are all used to increase soil quality.
