Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) per unit of milk produced show a clear and favorable downward trend after 2013, but not intensive enough given the target set (<0.772 kg CO2 eq in 2020). The analysis of the trend shows that the 2020 target will be reached in 2022. Difficulties in achieving the target arise, inter alia, from the unrealised activity "Feed analysis and calculation of diets for cattle and/or small ruminants" from the original proposal of the agri-environment- climate payments measure of the 2014-2020 Rural Development Programme.


In most aquifers in Slovenia, levels of plant protection products and their degradation products (metabolites) indicate a decreasing trend, which is mainly due to the decreased concentrations of atrazine and its metabolite desethylatrazine. The number of individual active substances and their degradation products exceeding the 0.1 µg/l threshold value for individual active substances is also decreasing.
