Nutrient Management Plans
Your Nutrient Management Plan or Nutrient Budget will be calculated and written by a FACTS Qualified adviser. They provide a concise reference document for nutrients planned and nutrients applied in the cropping year.
Plans are often developed ahead of farm assurance visits, why not use them to gain a better understanding of crop nutrition requirements and costs.
Why and How
Record manure applications for cross compliance
Understand farm nutrient balance changes over a cropping year
Demonstrate compliance with Farming Rules for Water
We collect information such as: previous years cropping and yields, soil type, manure applications and current cropping.
Using RB209 data this is then presented to show how much nutrient has been applied to each field and how much is likely to be required for the current crop.
We provide advice on compliance with Farming Rules for Water a variety of assurance schemes.
SFI What's in it for you?
26th January ‘23 saw DEFRA release their latest set of developments explaining and clarifying their plan for payments through the agricultural transition period and beyond. The announcement makes payments accessible to a wide range of farm businesses. The scheme is devised so farmers are rewarded for good environmental practice and no business is favoured or penalised for previously choosing to engage, or not, in good practice.
