Every Member State is required to put in place a Code of Good Agricultural Practice for reducing Ammonia Emissions from Agriculture and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine is publishing this draft code for consultation as part of this process.

Ammonia emissions arise principally from fertiliser applications, manure applications, animal feeding strategies, animal housing and manure storage. The latest information from the EPA shows that ammonia emissions increased by 2% in 2017. This trend in increasing emissions is projected to continue out to 2030.

This Code of Good Agricultural Practice for reducing ammonia emissions is a guidance document, that outlines the best practice measures for removing or lowering ammonia emissions associated with agricultural activities. The measures outlined in the Code are voluntary measures to help farmers identify appropriate actions for their individual farm enterprise.

The consultation document is available on the Department’s website at:
