Abstract

The principal Regulations allow the Minister of Agriculture to make payments of aid to farmers in nitrate sensitive areas who undertake to manage their land in accordance with a "basic scheme", "a premium arable scheme" or a "premium grass scheme". These Regulations add areas covered by a now repealed Order (S.I. 1990/1187) to the list of nitrate sensitive areas. Furthermore they expand the criteria of eligibility of land for aid which was included in the 1990 Order. The provisions relative to undertakings to be given by a farmer are amended so as to provide for undertakings carried out under the 1990 Order and for additional undertakings with respect to improvement of grassland quality and the timing of ploughing.
