Using farm dairy effluent on free-draining soils

July 2023

Additional measures, on top of regulations and industry good practice and guidelines, may be needed to minimise P losses from FDE applied to free-draining soils.

This factsheet is for dairy farmers, including those interested in front-footing P loss regulations, and for industry bodies and regional authorities looking at strengthening good practice, guidelines, and regulations for using FDE on stony free-draining soils with low capacity to retain P (low anion storage capacity).
