N & P Statements to 31 October 2019 now available

The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine has announced that interim Nitrogen and Phosphorus statements (N&P Statements) for the period January to October 2019 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 is 250 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare. 

Farmers are also reminded that completed Nitrates Record forms for the movement of organic fertiliser, temporary movement of animals during the year or short-term rental grazing agreements (Records 3, 4, 5 Forms) for 2019 should be submitted before 31st December 2019 to:

nitrates@agriculture.gov.ie

OR by post to:

Nitrates Section, Dept. of Agriculture, Food & Marine, Johnstown Castle, Co Wexford Y35 PN52

Farmers not already registered for www.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.

 

ENDS
