A Practical Approach to NVZs and Cross Compliance – Thainstone

Did you know that one-third of NVZ breaches found in Scotland in the last two years were in Aberdeenshire?

Let’s make that a thing of the past!Map showing the Moray, Aberdeenshire, Banff & Buchan NVZ area

This meeting at Thainstone will look at NVZ record keeping and what is required during a farm inspection.


  • Stuart Lorimer, RPID Thainstone
  • Paul Chapman, SAC Consulting

We will cover what is expected at an inspection and also highlight some common pitfalls faced by local farming businesses.

Business efficiency can be improved by careful planning for fertiliser applications at the beginning of the year when completing the nutrient budget.  This allows efficiency by ensuring N, P & K are matched to the crop requirements.  We’ll look at what potential you have to reduce the need for artificial fertilisers by taking full consideration of FYM, slurry and digestate/compost applications.
