What is NVZ?
NVZ stands for Nitrate Vulnerable Zones. NVZs are areas designated 'at risk' from agricultural nitrate pollution.
They include about 55% of the land in England.

Soil Nutrient Planning
Providing comprehensive NVZ planning services we keep your records up-to-date for nitrate vulnerable zones purposes. Using Planet Software we then record your actual usage, to demonstrate compliance with regulations.
NVZ and fertiliser planning services are provided through a mixture of visits from our consultants and secretarial input either on the farm, or in the office to ensure that a cost effective service is provided to you. In addition, our staff providing these recommendations are FACTS qualified.
