It's been fertilised and sprayed it's just worn out
I rang them years ago ,we had a field here that hadn't been ploughed ever since dad could rememberBoth of those operations mean that it’s been ‘cultivated’. As long as it doesn’t contain any rare species then I think you can just crack on.
if you want to cover your arse completely, it might be sensible to find out the official definitions from RPW and get an agronomist to write a note that it meets them?

They rang back and said they looked at all the satellite photos and said could see we had fert and sprayed it and cut or grazed regularly so carry on
Wasnt sure if the rules were still there
Last time this block was plough was about 15 year ago
