Key Dates – October

Back to news

We are nearly into the middle of October (believe it or not!) so we’ve got some key dates for farmers and the cross compliance requirements 👉

🎃 October 15th – This marks the start of the closed period for applying organic manure with high readily available nitrogen content to grassland on soils which are not shallow or sandy

🎃 31st October – Summer water abstraction licences – abstraction return forms will be available with 28 days to send your readings to the Environment Agency

🎃 1st November – You can burn heather, rough grass, bracken, gorse or vaccinium on land, other than in upland areas, from this date

(and dare we say it) 30th November – If you have a two-part tariff agreement for your water abstraction licence, expect to receive your second charge after 30th November
