NITRATES DEROGATION APPLICATIONS & FERTILIZER PLANS


If your annual stocking rate is greater than 170kgN/ha then you are obliged to apply annually for a Nitrates Derogation from the Dept of Agriculture. Subsequent to the application you must also complete annual records of your farming activities and record inputs (primarily feed, fertilizer & any imported manures) used. Failure to do the required paperwork or incorrect applications of fertilizers and manures can lead to Single Farm Payment penalties. Ceres Consulting are here to assist your application and record keeping along with providing on- going advice for your farming program to ensure you remain compliant with the relevant limits for your farm business. You also receive an annual fertilizer plan detailing the limits of fertilizers and other manures as they apply to your farm for that particular year.
