Dealing with Farm Wastes

Overview This workshop has been designed to help farmers take practical measures to improve farm waste management.

Who is the course for? Farmers or growers who wish to improve their knowledge of the legislation on farm waste management.  Agri-environment schemes such as the NI Countryside Management Scheme require farmers to produce and implement a Farm Waste Management Plan for their farm and this course will help participants to prepare this plan.

Course Content The course will help farmers to:

  • Make best use of the nutrient value of slurry and manure,
  • Identify waste management problems on the farm and consider remedial action,
  • Minimise the pollution risk from the farm,
  • Comply with the Codes of Good Agricultural Practice and Environmental legislation such as the Nitrates Action Programme and the Agricultural Waste Regulations.

Cost Free for farmers and growers
