The Netherlands: new derogation permit for dairy farms

Holland has from the EU got a new derogation permit for dairy farms for 2020 and 2021. Individual farms can apply for derogation. They need to have at least 80 pasture. On sandy and loess soils they are allowed to use 230 kilogram nitrogen out of manure and on other soils 250 kilogram. Without derogation this would be 170 kilogram. Use of phosphate fertilizer is forbidden. When pasture is renewed 50 kilogram nitrogen less is allowed, when pasture is changed to land for maize 65 kilogram less nitrogen is allowed. Manure has to be injected in the soil, however on peat and clay soils manure can be added with trailing shoe technology but with the condition that this is only allowed with a temperature below 20 degrees Celsius.
