The Environment Agency (EA) has produced a double-sided A4 poster and A5 tractor cab card to help farmers comply with the Farming Rules for Water.

Tried & Tested also has a limited number of pre-printed (on card) tractor cab cards to send through the post – please email [email protected] with your name and address to place a request.

Farming Rules for Water is the common name for The Reduction and Prevention of Agricultural Diffuse Pollution (England) Regulations 2018, which came into force on 2 April 2018.

There are eight rules in total; five cover the use of organic manures and manufactured fertilisers and the remaining three relate to soil management.

The rules are enforced by the EA using an advice-led approach, which means it will give farmers a chance to address any breaches before taking enforcement action.
