Slurry – Wet Weather Contingency Planning

Posted in

With Stephen Field, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA)

In this podcast the Farm Advisory Service sits down with unit manager for the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Stephen Field. With changing and more dramatic weather patterns, increasing periods of wet weather and poor ground conditions, having ample slurry storage on farm is crucial. What is just as important is having a plan or process for when you find your storage stretched to the limit. As part of our series on Slurry Management and Application, Stephen discusses the threats of increased rainfall, the dangers of environmental pollution from slurry and the options available to farmers struggling with their storage capacity.
