In order to design a land management plan that provides a good balance between agricultural production and natural values in the polders, a land management alternatives analysis was conducted for the region. The analysis was based on an integrated database assembled for the polder area and the AGNPS, which was adapted to Lithuanian conditions using modeling techniques. Six polders on Rusne Island were used to represent both summer and winter polder conditions in the model.
