N & P Statements to June 2017 now available

The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine has announced that Nitrogen and Phosphorus statements (N&P Statements) for the period January to June 2017 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 be compliant with the Nitrates Regulations and avoid penalties farmers must comply with the standard limit of 170 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare from livestock manure or the limit for those who hold an approved derogation of 250 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare from livestock manure.

Farmers not already registered for 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/mobileupdates/ to access the sign-on form, or alternatively contact the regional office
