NI extends deadline for slurry export forms
Farmers in Northern Ireland have until midnight on 1 March to submit their manure export records for 2017 to Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), instead of the initial 31 January deadline.
The new submission tool is accessible online on the same website as CAFRE's nutrient management calculators.
DAERA has warned that farmers going through an agent to complete this process should act now as agent authorisation will take time to process. Forms to authorise an agent to declare your manure exports on your behalf are available online too.
Failure to submit manure movement forms in time will add the corresponding volumes to a farm's nitrogen loadings for the year and may push it over the limit, resulting in penalties.
