Ireland: reduction in nitrates derogation

Transporting manure to farms that have sufficient land is the easiest way to solve a surplus. Receiving farms do need more storage capacity for this. The Irish government therefore subsidizes recipient farms 70 percent of the required investment in expanding slurry storage capacity.
