From 2nd April 2018.
New rules for all farmers in England to help protect water quality, by standardising the good farm practices that many are already performing and offering a new approach to regulation.
In essence the rules require farmers to:
• keep soil on the land;
• match nutrients to crop, and soil needs, and
• keep livestock fertilisers and manures out of the water.
