On the 2nd April 2018, DEFRA implemented 8 new rules for farmers and land managers to prevent water pollution in England.
The legislation has been designed to build on the best practice currently exercised by the agriculture industry, so the new rules shouldn’t come as a shock. However, you do need to be able to demonstrate that you are following these new rules if evidence is requested by the Environment Agency, especially if you are located within a high-risk area.
