Protecting Our Water, Soil and Air: A Code of Good Agricultural Practice for Farmers, Growers and Land Managers

 
9780112432845: Protecting Our Water, Soil and Air: A Code of Good Agricultural Practice for Farmers, Growers and Land Managers

"Protecting our Water, Soil and Air: A Code of Good Agricultural Practice for Farmers, Growers and Land Managers" presents a practical guide to help farmers, growers and land managers protect the environment in which they operate. All farmers are required to have access to the Code and to be familiar with the key actions that can be taken to protect and enhance the quality of water, soil and air. The Code applies in England and replaces the separate Water, Air and Soil Codes published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Welsh Office Agricultural Department. The Code has been written by technical specialists from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and Natural England. The Code offers practical interpretation of legislation and provides good advice on best practice. The term 'good agricultural practice' means a practice that minimises the risk of causing pollution while protecting natural resources and allowing economic agriculture to continue. This Code provides an important point of reference based around the main operations that farmers, growers and land managers might undertake, but also management plans, farm infrastructure and waste management. Sections on water pollution are of particular note as, by 2015, the Water Framework Directive will require an integrated approach to managing water quality and quantity. The legal requirements and good practices within this Code will help farmers to achieve the new standards. Sections of the Code also form a Statutory Code under Section 97 of the Water Resources Act 1991.
