The aim of this project is to significantly reduce the risk of air and water pollution. This can be achieved by improving slurry management capabilities.
Current slurry management regulation require sufficient storage to cover the closed application periods, but high rainfall causes capacity problems. Climate change is leading to prolonged high rainfall and extra-low flows with high-water temperatures increasing slurry management problems.
Overuse of slurry on land causes pollution, therefore, farmers are looking for alternatives to traditional methods to build more resilience into the landscapes and to reduce siltation and diffuse pollution from farms.
