Contingency Plans for Field Operations

Cropping operations are often time-limited and labour intensive.  All farms should carry a contingency plan in case anyone within the team is unable to work.

The templates below have been designed to allow you to complete the basic details about the running of your farm.  These should be completed and kept somewhere accessible where all staff can have access to the important contact information carried within them.

If you would like any help to complete these forms or need general agricultural advice you can contact the Farm Advisory Service helpline number on 0300 323 0161, or by email at

We would also like to highlight the wider emotional, practical and financial support to individuals and their families across the agricultural sector including farming and crofting available from RSABI who can be contacted by telephone on 0300 111 4166.
