Trading of manure:
- The farm can only subtract nitrogen from manure, if the manure is sold to a registered business, to biogas and manufacture plants. Balance between nitrogen supply and demand
Moreover, a farm that has its own biogas or manufacture plant and sells a manure product can deduct the nitrogen in the sold         - In the planning period, the use of nitrogen for manure purposes must not
manure product from the farm’s total use of nitrogen.                                                                                exceed the farm’s nitrogen quota.




Periods for manure spreading:
- In the period from harvest to 1 February, no liquid manure must be spread. The exception is spreading from harvest to October 1
on areas with fodder grass that stands throughout the winter, and for areas where winter rape is planned that following year. Another
exception is spreading from harvest to 20 October on areas with grass seeds for which a contract with a seed producing company
has been arranged about the delivery of seeds in the season to come.
- In the period from harvest to 20 October solid manure must only be spread on areas where crops are planned the following
winter.
- In the period from harvest to 1 November, no silage juice must be spread unless the spreading takes place on cultivated areas or
areas where crops are planned the following winter
- In the period from 1 September to 1 March, no liquid manure must be spread on crops that are not harvested every year.




Storage of silage:
1) Juicy silage, including silage from sugar beet tops, sugar beet waste and certain types of grass must be stored at a special place
for silage (or silage silo).                                                                                                            Storage of compost and solid manure:
2) The requirements also apply to silage silos build after 1 August 2004 that store non-juicy silage.                                   - Compost with a dry matter content above 30% can be stored in the field (in

QUIREMENTS SPREADSHEET


ur knowledge, as of May 2006.

               NATIONAL STANDARD ------> SCROLL RIGHT IF more than one standard per article

               The EU Member States are obliged to maintain and/or re-establish living spaces for all European wild
               species of birds in or outside of protected areas. From this the following statutory duties arise for
               agricultural holdings:
               The prohibition of the removal of certain landscape features, the legitimate biotope protection, the
               standards of the intervention regulation, the standards of the protection of species. This means
               nesting sites, breeding places, dwellings and places of refuge of the European species of bird may
               neither be eliminated nor damaged without individual special permission.


               (see below)



               For the conservation of birds protected by the bird protection Directive the Member States, in
               Germany the countries (Laender), must select and notify the most suitable areas as bird protected
               areas. Additional requirements for farmers on the Laender level could be designed in the form of a
               protected area regulation or a single arrangement. Such additional regulations can concern for
               example:
               - A ban on the ploughing of grassland surfaces
               - The change of the water regime, particularly in humid areas
               - the maintenance of water bodies
               (see above: maintenance of landscape elements)



               It is prohibited to pursue the wild living birds of European species, to catch, hurt or kill them as well as
               to damage and destroy or remove their nests and eggs. Furthermore, it is neither permitted to
               possess nor collect their eggs even if they are empty. It is prohibited to disturb the European wild
               living birds (i.e. measures with the aim of the disturbance without special permission).

               As above.

               As above.

               As above.

               As above.

               As far as it concerns species of birds which are subject to the German hunting law (e.g. domestic
               birds of prey, such as goshawk or buzzard, but also many duck, goose and pigeon types), restrictions
               regarding their capture and killing are settled in the hunting law (e.g. federal and national game laws,
               national and regional regulations (Bund, Laender) on the shooting seasons). The killing of birds to
               prevent damage is only permitted in agreement with the hunting regulations - or with special national
               regulations (e.g. "Rabenvogel- regulation") in connection with a special permission. Offences against
               national regulations of the nature protection law or hunting law - depending on the kind of action - can
               be criminal offences.


               Instruments, mechanisms or methods which cause the random capture of birds, or their killing in
               quantities, or the regional disappearing of a kind of bird are forbidden.
The groundwater regulation prohibits and/or limits direct leaching (e.g. over lines or seeping pits) and
indirect leaching of certain dangerous materials in the groundwater. On agricultural holdings
petroleum products and certain chemical plant protection substances are to be handled in such a way
that leaching to groundwater does not take place. The danger of leaching exists in particular with non-
adequate storage of these materials used in the agricultural enterprise and with the incorrect disposal
of pesticide rests.

No application of sewage sludge when concentration of heavy metal exceeds certain levels




Within 3 years the maximum amount of sewage sludge to be applied is 5 t of dry matter/ha.-In case of
sewage sludge compost the amount can be up to 10 t dry matter/ha, if the concentration of heavy
metals and certain organic pollutants is not higher than half of the allowed value (values according to
the national ordinance).
It is prohbited to apply untreated sewage sludge




Prohibition of appliacation on permanent grassland. If sewage must only be applied and incoroprated
deeply into the soil before the seeding of forage crops or silage maize




Sewage sludge must not be applied to soil, where vegetables or fruits are grown



None.
Nutrients in the sewage sludge have to be included in the nutrient balance (see Nitrates Directive)




Only application on soil that has been tested for pH and available nutrients (P, K, Mg)




None.



Application of residual sludge from other treatments than treating domestic, communal or similar
waste water on agricultural land is not allowed




(soil analysis see above; as well sewage sludge has to analysed, but this is the duty of the party that
delivers the sludge)

Proper fertilisation and use of plant protection agents do not represent an offence against the
regulations of the groundwater directive. Requirements for the correct storage and handling of liquid
manure and liquid containing livestock manures are described in the nitrate directives. (this is rather
an explanatory sentence for the goundwater directive)

Storage capacities must be present for at least 6 months. Existing facilities have to be adapted till
31.12.2008. Until this date storage capacities of 2.5 to 3 months are present plus reserves for times
where the soil might be water saturated, frozen or covered with snow. In individual cases a smaller
storage capacity can be specified, if a storage outside the holding can be demonstrated or there is
proof that the manure is utilised or disposed of in an environmentally compatible manner elsewhere
(e.g. production of biogas).
Fertilisation with liquid manure, poultry excrements or other nitrogenous-liquid fertilisers (all with more
than 1.5% N/kg dry matter) after harvesting is only permitted on field grass, undersown crops, autumn
sowings including intercropping and for straw fertilisation.



Maximum limits for the application of fertilisers containing N: 170 kg N/ha on farm level per year from
livestock manure (including grazing) (Germany is seeking allowance from the Commission to permit
application of up to 230 kgN/ha on grassland under certain conditions e.g. very intensive use with 3-4
cuts, application techniques with low emissions...)




There is a general prohibition of the application of fertilisers with more than 1.5% N/kg dry matter
between 1 November and 31 January (2006: 15 January) on arable land and between 15 November
and 31 January (2006: 15 January) on grassland. (This is not valid for farmyard manure, unless it is
dried poultry manure). The competent authority may permit exemptions with regard to the the location
conditions and the agricultural use or arrange further temporal prohibitions of application.


Near water courses: see below
Fertilisers and other substrates with more than 1.5% N/kg dry matter must not be applied on soil that
is saturated or flooded with water or continuously frozen and not melting during the day or has a
continuous snow cover of more than 5 cm. Exemptions can be granted by responsible authority.




Application of fertiliser or other substrates with more than 1.5% N/kg dry matter near water courses:
direct entry has to be avoided and and a minimum distance of 3 meters must be kept unless certain
application techniques with high precision are used)




Running off or overflowing of the liquid manure or seeping of liquids of storing farmyard manure and
penetration into the groundwater, into ground and surface waters and into drains must be prevented
reliably.




The content of N of the soil has to be determined and documented annually through soil analyses -
except on grassland (Exception: areas with a maximum fertilisation of 50 kg N/ha *a). Alternatively,
published test results from comparable locations or recommeded procedures for calculation and
estimation of N-content (for grassland, fruit, vegetable and vine) can be used.
The Member States must specify the necessary conservation measures for the types of habitat and
species occurring in Natura 2000 areas and take appropriate legal, administrative or contractual
measures, in order to reach the protection aims. The Laender of the Federal Republic convert this
regulation in the national protected areas in Laender law. The directive requires appropriate
measures, in order to avoid the deterioration of the natural living spaces and habitats of the species
as well as disturbance in the protected areas.




The species of plants specified in Annex IV of the Habitats Directive are strictly protected and may not
be picked intentionally, collected, cut off, excavated or destroyed. The keeping, transport and sale or
exchange and offering for sale or exchange of specimens of such species taken in the wild are in
principal forbidden. The prohibitions apply to all life stages of these particularly protected plants.
This regulation has only importance for the holding, if the protected plants occur on agricultural
surfaces. If this is the case, the previous use can usually be continued. If for the conservation of these
plants, there are consequences for the management, the responsible authority will communicate it
and will agree upon or will arrange suitable measures.


As above.




A use of the means of capture and killing specified in the Habitats Directive as well as means of
conveyance for capture or killing certain species of animal.




The non-authorised, intentional introduction of any not native species in nature is prohibited. This
regulation does not limit the cultivation of plants for agricultural production, which are specified in the
currently valid versions of the "common catalogue for varieties of vegetables" and in the "common
catalogue for agricultural plant varieties", respectively.

Appropriately carried out management which is necessary for maintaining the quality of proitected sites
is permissible.




To maintain the habitat of European wild bird species, hedges or break, rows of trees, field wood, humid
areas and single trees are of special importance (defined in GAEC as "Landscape features") and must
be retained. Depending on the Land, additional protected landscape features can be defined.
No application of sewage sludge on soils with pH of 5 or smaller, of in case such values are planned to
be reached through the management.



Not more than this maximum amount may be stored on or near the area, where the sewage sludge is
applied.




Sewage sludge must not be applied in forest areas, water protection zones and in certain nature
conservation areas
The allowed maximum amount of sewage sludge, that may be applied, might have to be reduced in
case the contents of P are higher than necessary for the nutrient needs of the plants, as well taking into
account available nutrients in the soil




Open vessels must not be filled to the brim and a reserve has to be kept for precipitation.




After harvesting of the main fruit only 40 kg NH4-N/ha (ammonium nitrogen) or 80 kg total N/ha (total
nitrogen) are to be applied on arable land with liquid manure, poultry excrements or nitrogenous-liquid
secondary raw material fertiliser.
Application of fertiliser with more than 1.5% N/kg dry matter on arable land near water courses in case
of slope of more than 10% towards water course a distance of 10 m has to be kept (unless fertiliser is
injected directly into the soil). From 10-20 m fertiliser may only be applied on bare soil with immediate
incorporation and on cultivated soil in row crops (distance of rows 45 cm or more) only with direct
incorporation or existence of developped undersown crops, in other crops only when sufficiently
developed, or after conservation tillage. Farmyard manure may be applied within the first 10 m, if the
above requirements relevant for 10-20 m are complied with .




Constructions for storing and filling of liquid manure including their collecting filling mechanisms,
decanting mechanisms and replenishing mechanisms must be stable and leak-proof.




An N-balance has to be produced every year till the 31 March (not for areas with ornamental plants, tree
nurseries and orchards, or areas that are only grazed with a maximum N-input of 100 kh N/ha and no
additional fertilising). N-balance not required on farms where each field is not fertilised with more than
50 kh N/ha*a, or on farms with less than 10 ha agriculturally used land - already excluding the above
named areas - with a maximum of 1 ha vegetable, hops and strawberries and producing not more than
500 kg N from manure. (The allowed N-surplus is reduced gradually, but it is not yet clear in how far it
would be CC-relevant if limits are exceeded).
As far as surfaces in habitats directive or bird protection areas are cultivated, additional cultivating
standards or cultivating limits only arise if obligatory regulations were clearly specified in the protected
area regulation, or in contractual agreements for such areas. In all other respects habitat types and
habitats may not be substantially impaired.
SCROLL LEFT<------NATIONAL STANDARD
The determination of the content of total nitrogen of organic or organic-
mineral fertilisers or other substrates, in case of slurry and other liquid
organic fertilisers additionnally NH4 (ammonium nitrogen) has to be
documented before the application on the basis of labelling, laboratory
analyses, or on the basis of the calculation and estimation procedures
recommended by the competent authority or approximate values.
The requirements are not valid for water courses, that are not included in the
German Federal Water Resources Act. Stricter distance rules laid down
legally are still valid (can differ from Land to Land).




Stationary constructions for storing solid manure are to be provided with a
close and water-impermeable base plate. For proper collection of the liquid
manure the base plate is to be set in laterally and be protected from the
penetration of surface water. If for the liquids a pipe into an existing liquid
manure pit is not possible, a separate collecting mechanism is to be planned.
Schemes and projects which could impair a Natura 2000 site substantially,
are to be examined before their licensing or execution by the authorising body
for their compatibility with the protection aims. Schemes or projects may not
be implemented, which could impair the preservation aims specified for such
an area substantially, neither within nor outside of Natura 2000 areas. If
necessary, the adherence to administrative guidance is relevant for the other
obligations; e.g. guidance of the buidling authority for construction measures,
which results from an impact assessment.

                          lead to an indirect discharge of that substance into groundwater, unless this is carried out under a permit granted
                          by the Environment Agency. You must take particular care with List I substances, such as sheep dip and
                          pesticides, as small quantities can cause serious damage to groundwater. You must comply with notices served
                          by the EA for the protection of groundwater.


                          You must comply with notices served by the EA for the protection of groundwater.

Unless the land is a dedicated site (for sludge spreading?) the concentration in the soil of any elements listed in
the soil table must not exceed the specified limit either at the time of using sludge or as a result of applying it.



Unless the land is a dedicated site (for sludge spreading?) the average annual rate of addition to the land of
sludge (in terms of any elements in the sludge table in national legislation) must not exceed the specified limit. In
addition, the following information must be supplied to the sludge producer: 1) the address and area of the
agricultural unit concerned, 2) the date on which sludge was used, 3) the quantity of sludge used.

Where any untreated sludge has been used on the land without being injected into the soil, you must, as soon as
reasonably practicable afterwards work the sludge into the soil.




After sludge or septic tank sludge has been used on agricultural land, do not graze animals or harvest forage
crops for three weeks from the date of use.




No fruit or vegetable crops, other than fruit trees, should be growing or being harvested in the soil at the time of

use.
After sludge or septic tank sludge has been used on agricultural land, do not harvest fruit and vegetable crops
that are grown in direct contact with the soil and normally eaten raw for ten months from the date of use.




The sludge must be used in such a way that account is taken of the nutrient needs of the plants and the quality of
the soil and of the surface and groundwater is not impaired. The pH value of the soil must not be less than 5.




Sludge can only be used on agricultural land if the land is tested or assessed in accordance with the
requirements of domestic legislation.




As row 26 and row 28.



None?




Sludge can only be used on agricultural land if the sludge and land is tested or assessed in accordance with the
requirements of domestic legislation.

On land this is located within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ), you must comply with the NVZ Action Programme
Measures. (Note that the NVZ Action Programme is due to be revised in 2006).
On land designated as a Special Area of Conservation you must comply with requirements which apply to
Special Protection Areas under the Wild Birds Directive.

N cannot be applied during the following periods:
There must be sufficient slurry storage facilities (or alternative arrangements) to comply with the closed period during which
spreading of certain manures onto certain soil types is prohibited.




Any material or fertiliser that contains N and is applied to the land must be taken account of in the N fertiliser calculations.




Organic manure loading averages over the whole farmed area each year (beginning on 19 December) is limited to: 250kg total
N per ha for grassland in any NVZ; 170kg total N per ha for non-grass crops in an NVZ designated in 1996 or 210kg total N per
ha for non-grass crops in an NVZ designated in 2002. The 210kg limit applies until 19 Dec 2006 when the limit will revert to
170kg N. These limits include N from manure deposited by animals while grazing. Applications of organic manure to individual
fields must not exceed 250kg per ha of total N per year. This limit does not include manure deposited by grazing animals.


As row 34.




Do not apply any organic manures or N fertilisers to steeply sloping fields.




Do not apply any organic manures or N fertilisers when the ground is waterlogged, flooded, frozen hard or snow covered.




Do not apply any organic manures or N fertilisers in a way that contaminates water courses. Do not apply organic manures
within 10 metres of watercourses.




Do not apply more N fertiliser than a crop requires, taking account of crop uptake, soil N supply, excess winter rainfall and N
available from organic manures. You must spread N feriliser and organic manures as evenly and accurately as practiacally
possible.



As row 35.




None.




None.




Keep farm and field records on cropping, livestock numbers, N fertiliser usage and manure usage for a minimum of five years
after the relevant activity takes place.
None.




On whole holding, do not deliberately pick, collect, cut, uproot or destroy a wild plant of a European protected species.




On whole holding, do not keep, transport, sell or exchange or offer for sale or exchange any live or dead wild plant of a
European protected species (including any part of or anything derived from such a plant).




On whole holding, do not use an indiscriminate means for killing or taking certain wild animals including European protected
species. Indiscriminate means include explosives, crossbows and gassing or smoking out. Certain wild animals includes the
mountain hare, polecat and certain species of seals (!?). European protected species include all species of bats, the dormouse
and all species of whales (?!).

On whole holding, do not release or allow to escape into the wild and animal species not normally found in GB. Such animals
include the Canada Goose and the Grey Squirrel. Do not plant or cause to grow in the wild any plant as listed in national
legislation (including Giant Hogweed and Japanese Knotweed). Exemptions from these requirements apply if an appropriate
licence is given by Defra.
