Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZ) a refresher. The NVZ regulations are the most frequent topic of enquiry to the FAS helpline, with over 200 queries per year. To help clear up the confusion around NVZs, and to ensure you have the information you need and the right records in place, Briony Burge from Creedy Associates will deliver this FAS event. Briony brings realms of experience having delivered NVZ workshops to farmers in the South West for 9 years. She will seek to simplify and explain the requirements and answer any queries you may have.

Cross compliance and greening update – what’s new for 2021? From 2021, the Government is taking measures to simplify the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) – including removing all three of the greening requirements. However, you will still have to meet the minimum standards on the environment, animal and plant health, and animal welfare. Andrew Wells from Arable Alliance will be on hand to talk you through the changes to cross compliance and greening for the 2021 scheme year to help you to comply with the requirements.
