Regulation & Compliance
We work in partnership with the Environment Agency to increase understanding of the regulatory requirements on farm. During recent farm inspections they have found a significant number of non-compliances with the requirements of Farming Rules for Water.
Farming Rules for Water were introduced in 2018 and set minimum requirements for managing soil, nutrients and water on farm:
Nutrient Management Planning
Safe Manure Storage
Conditions for Manure Applications
Location of Manure Applications
Location of Fertiliser Applications
Soil Erosion and Runoff
Protect watercourses from livestock
Location of feeders near watercourses
We have produced a simple farmer guide and cab sticker to make the requirements of Farming Rules for Water easier to understand and comply with, look out for a hard copy of the guide at local events or download your own now!
