“Farmers are generally aware of the new legislation in dealing with waste they produce on farm,” Agrogate team leader Phil Edenborough notes. “But many farmers are not aware of opportunities to generate income through the spreading of, for example, diary or vegetable waste to land for agricultural benefit or ecological improvement.”

Such treatment can only be made after a licence has been granted by the Environment Agency however, Mr Edenborough says. “This may seem complex and costly, but the potential financial returns can be highly significant.

“We have been working in this area for some time, and can take the pain out of applying for a licence, and give a better chance of success.”
