Phosphorus Output of Livestock Excreta - WT1004

Objectives & Scope

1. Collate evidence that underpins proposals for manure P production standards for each farm livestock type included in the Nitrates Regulations. As far as possible, build upon the research undertaken as part of previous project WT0715NVZ, addressing gaps/weaknesses where necessary.

2. Identify manure P production standards that have been set by other Member States, including those with a derogation.

3. Propose standards that can be applied in England, Wales and Scotland.

4. Prepare an evidence paper describing the manure P standards, presenting supporting evidence and providing references.
