The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine are announcing that the deadline of 1 July for mandatory use of the Department’s on-line system to record the movement of organic manures is now extended to 1 September 2021. The on-line system updates and from 1 September replaces the previous method of submitting paper Record 3 Forms.
Farmers are reminded that the deadline to declare movements is 31 October 2021 for those who applied for a Nitrates derogation, and 31 December 2021 for all other farmers.
The Department on-line system for recording movements of organic manures will also update the Departments Nitrates & Phosphorus Statements for each farmer periodically though the year to allow them see the effect an export/import has on their overall (cattle only) N&P levels.
A short video demonstrating how to use the system is now available on the Department’s website here: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/c9563-rural-environment-sustainability-nitrates/#nitrates-records
The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine has also announced that Nitrogen and Phosphorus statements (N&P Statements) for January to May 2021 (cattle only) are now available on the Department’s online system www.agfood.ie.
These statements are particularly useful to allow farmers to plan for the coming year and to ensure compliance with the limits of the Nitrates Regulations, thus avoiding penalties for breaching the limits of 170 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare or the limit for those who hold an approved derogation is 250 kgs of Nitrogen per hectare .
Farmers not already registered for agfood.ie can do so by logging onto www.agfood.ie and clicking the 'Register' button. More information is available on the Department’s website at the following link: https://www.gov.ie/en/service/department-of-agriculture-and-foods-online-services/#agfoodie
