N & P Statements to October 2017 now available

The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine has announced that Nitrogen and Phosphorus statements (N&P Statements) for cattle only  for the period January to October 2017 are now available on the Department’s online system www.agfood.ie.

These statements are particularly useful to allow farmers to plan for the remainder of the year, in order to ensure compliance with the limits of the Nitrates Regulations, thus avoiding penalties for breaching the limits of 170 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare or the limit for those who hold an approved derogation of 250 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare.

Farmers are also reminded to submit nitrates records for the movement of organic fertiliser, temporary movement of animals during the year or short term rental grazing agreements (Records 3, 4, 5 forms) now.

Completed forms should be sent to:

Nitrates Section,
Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine,
Johnstown Castle Estate,
Co. Wexford
Y35 PN52
 

Alternatively they may be submitted by e-mail to nitrates@agriculture.gov.ie

Farmers not already registered for agfood.ie can do so by logging onto www.agfood.ie and clicking the 'Register' button. To register a mobile phone number for future SMS text alerts log on to https://www.agriculture.gov.ie/contactsupdates/ to access the sign-on form, or alternatively contact Nitrates section at 053-9163444.

 

ENDS
