Granting of derogation allows farmers in an NVZ to increase the amount of manure nitrogen they can apply on their farm from 170kg per hectare to 250kg per hectare, per year.

To be eligible for derogation you must have and maintain at least 80% grassland during 2018. There are conditions attached to derogation and applicants need to provide a written declaration that they will abide by the conditions. Farmers wishing to apply for grassland derogation must do so between Monday 2 October and Friday 29 December 2017.

If you require assistance please do not hesitate to contact Vickers and Barrass where we will be happy to assist.
