Several thousand years of human impact on the landscape in the form of cultivation is the
reason to many nature- and culture values in the agricultural landscape today. Intensification
and rationalization has led to vast monocultures and has forced many farms to close down.
These trends have increased in the last years and constitute great threats to the values of the
cultivation landscape. The purpose with the environmental objective A varied agricultural
landscape is to protect these values.
The environmental action plan of the municipality of Lund (LundaEko) 2006-2012 is built on the
16 national environmental objectives. The purpose with this paper is to put together material that
the municipality of Lund can use in their work with modifying the local intermediate goals for
the environmental objective A varied cultural landscape. The overall issue for this paper is
”What has happened with the state of the cultivation landscape in the municipality of Lund since
LundaEko was approved in 2006?” The paper seeks to portrait the current conditions of the
following fields: meadows and pastures, organic farming, exploitation threats to agricultural
land, landscape elements with cultural values and species that are threatened. Focus is on the
follow-up of strategies and their effects on the agricultural landscape.
Eight measures have been achieved or have had noticeable positive results. The work with six
measures is still in progress and with five of the measures has the work still not started. Four
of the measures where work has yet to be started directly involve the farmers within the
municipality. Area with pasture has increased with 31, 79 % in the last ten years. 12 % of the
total agricultural land is organic farming. This is an increase with 6 % since 2001. 1 662 ha are
planes for some sort of exploitation. Two nature reserves have been created under the period
and three more are in progress. Several green passages have been built, which are important for
the landscape elements with cultural values.
In spite of the fact that the municipality of Lund is one of the most examined in the country,
there are still knowledge gaps concerning specific areas in the municipality and regarding some
organisms. Resources are needed for inventories and preservation. Identification of some
factors in the surrounding world and interviews with three farmers have showed challenges for
the future.
