This is the original version (as it was originally made). Northern Ireland Statutory Rules are not carried in their revised form on this site.
2. These rules shall ensure that, for each farm or livestock unit, the amount of livestock manure applied to the land each year, including by the animals themselves, shall not exceed a specified amount per hectare.
The specified amount per hectare shall be the amount of manure containing 170 kg N. However—
(a)for the first 4 year action programme an amount of manure containing up to 210 kg N may be allowed;
(b)during and after the first 4 year action programme, different amounts from those referred to above may be fixed. These amounts must be fixed so as not to prejudice the achievement of the Objectives and must be justified on the basis of objective criteria, for example—
long growing seasons,
crops with high nitrogen uptake,
high net precipitation in the vulnerable zone,
soils with exceptionally high denitrification capacity.
