Farmers missing slurry spreading deadline must contact Environment Agency

The NFU has issued the warning after being contacted by several members in the South West and the North who have experienced two or three times more rainfall than usual over the last month.

 

Slurry spreading has to be completed by this date because of cross compliance and Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ) restrictions.

 

NFU vice president Guy Smith said: “We cannot promise this is a route out of the problem, but officers will look at different situations on a case-by-case basis.

 

“We have alerted the Environment Agency to let them know this may be an issue for farmers affected by the wet weather.”
