ARCHIVE: Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs) - Guidance for Farmers. Field application of manufactured nitrogen fertilisers (Leaflet 9 - PB12736i)

4. Fertiliser Spreading

Once you have decided it is safe to spread, you will need to check before actually making the application that you are able to do so in the correct manner.

YOU MUST spread manufactured nitrogen fertiliser and other nitrogen-containing materials in as accurate a way as possible.

You should regularly check, calibrate and adjust each fertiliser spreader you use, following the manufacturer’s instructions. You should use only manufactured nitrogen fertiliser that has physical characteristics and quality that will allow you to spread it accurately.
