Good management of nutrients makes good sense for your farm business. It allows you to maximise the financial value of your slurry and manure and reduce your artificial fertiliser input costs.
It will also give you the peace of mind that your farm is not at risk of polluting your land, neighbouring land and the wider environment, reducing the risk of breaching any cross-compliance, Single Payment or agri-environment requirements.
Good nutrient management also offers many benefits for the environment. Nitrate and phosphate can cause serious pollution and impact on aquatic life, which can affect the wider natural environment. However, there are some simple precautions you can take to avoid nutrients being wasted and watercourses polluted.
