Fertiliser Application


Records must be kept of all fertiliser and compost applications (manual or electronic) including:

  • The block reference

  • The application dates

  • The fertiliser types

  • The quantities applied

  • The method of application

  • The operator name

These records shall be readily available and meet the above requirements.


The interval between the application of organic fertiliser and harvest should also be sufficient so as to not pose a food safety risk. This should be written into the organic matter risk assessment.
