ACCS and Management plans.

Please dont hate me, but do you need all three of the following for a mixed farm:

Nutrient Management plan
Soil Management plan
Manure management plan

the latter two are mentioned in the scheme requirements, but i can see no mention of the Nutrient plan. However, when i did a virtual inspection, the assessor asked for a nutrient management plan. Is he wrong?

Just tell them you use RB209 via the internet.

As above really, perhaps make a record for simplicity or incorporate your manure management plan. The standard is as follows.

EC.m.3 Fertiliser rates must be based on a calculation of the nutrient requirements of the crop and on regular analysis of nutrient levels in soil, plant or nutrient solution
-Proper account is taken of nutrient content of organic manure
-Analysis results or standard analysis (e.g. RB 209)

All taken from the red tractor standards document.

Yes all 3 and nutrient management needed for cross compliance
