A Step-by-Step Guide to reducing Aquatic Buffer Zones in the Arable Sector.

Different rules apply to broadcast air-assisted sprayers. The booklet assumes that all necessary planning for the crop, the spray operation and product selection has been done in advance and that requirements of the Green Code are followed throughout.

The LERAP scheme applies only to reducing buffer zones laid down to protect water. You cannot reduce buffer zones designed to safeguard hedges, field margins etc under the LERAP scheme.

Note (Nov 2011): See also Arable scheme interim arrangements 2011 - a guidance note about an addition to the arable horizontal boom sprayer scheme and the new buffer zone record form.
