New agricultural waste controls came into force at midnight on 14 May.

The NFU has warned that farmers need to be fully aware if a farm tip is found to be used on or after May 15 2006, it will result in severe penalties for the farmer concerned and costly remediation of the site.

But another key provision of the regulation does allow farmers to register exemptions with the Environment Agency

The EA has produced a comprehensive exemptions pack to help farmers through this registration process (available by phoning 0845 603 3113).
