The impact of field drainage on pollution risk

0

Points to consider:

  • Best practice should always be followed when applying manures, fertilisers and agrochemicals
  • Organic manures should not be applied to land within 12 months of pipe or mole drainage installation
  • Organic manures should not be applied to drained land when soils are wet and drains are running
  • Organic manures should not be stored within 10 metres of a field drain

To find out more have a look at the ADDB Field Drainage Guide which looks at the principles, installation and maintenance issues.
