When released into the atmosphere ammonia can have significant effects on human health and the environment. The main source of ammonia pollution in the UK has been identified as agriculture.
As part of the Government’s clean air strategy a new Code of Good Agricultural Practice (COGAP) for Reducing Ammonia Emissions has been produced by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs. The guidance explains practical steps farmers, growers, land managers, advisors and contractors can take to minimise ammonia emissions from the storage and application of organic manures, the application of manufactured fertiliser, and through modifications to livestock diet and housing.
The guidance can be downloaded from the Gov.UK website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/code-of-good-agricultural-practice-for-reducing-ammonia-emissions
Staying up to date with the latest guidance for your industry can help to minimise the risk of pollution incidents and the costs involved.
