Teagasc has proposed twenty-one amendments to the Draft European Communities (Good Agricultural Practice for Protection of Waters) regulation 2010 as part of the consultation process to review the nitrates regulations.

The detailed 120-page scientific document has been submitted to the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government and to the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

Teagasc acknowledges the challenges that the Nitrates Regulations present for pig and poultry producers. Changes to the Nitrogen index for tillage crops are proposed to encourage the use of pig and poultry manure by tillage farmers. It is also proposed that the provision of manure storage facilities on tillage farms be encouraged and supported to ensure that the manure is available during the limited time period it can be applied.
