Is Organics an option?

If you can answer yes to some or all of these questions then you should consider switching to organic production.

Animal systems

  1. Is your current stocking rate below 2 livestock units per ha?
  2. Can your animal housing be modified to incorporate a bedded lying area?
  3. Are you in another agri-environmental scheme? Some Scheme options may not be eligible for Organic Farming Scheme (OFS) payment.

Crop systems

  1. Can you incorporate a grass/clover break into your rotation?
  2. Do you have a source of farmyard manure/slurry on or near your own farm?
  3. Can you see yourself farming without relying on pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
