New rules for farmers in England to help protect water quality

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.
