Agriculutal Lime - The Natural Solution
Software tool that will allow farmers and advisors to calculate the nitrogen production in manure produced by different types of permanently housed pigs and poultry. The nitrogen production value produced by ENCASH may be used instead of the standard values of manure N production when calculating compliance with the Livestock manure N farm limit. This limit is one of the rules for farms within Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs). The output from ENCASH can be entered into the PLANET software which is a recognised tool for carrying out calculations and producing reports which help assess and show compliance with the NVZ rules.
