Farm Nutrient Management Scheme
DARD’s Farm Nutrient Management Scheme (FNMS) is a key measure to help improve water quality in Northern Ireland.
The Scheme provides financial assistance to farmers who are installing facilities to increase storage capacity for farm manures produced within the farm.
This will assist compliance with Action Programme measures to be implemented under the Nitrates Directive and with the recently introduced Control of Pollution (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003 (SSAFO Regulations).
FNMS closed to applications in March 2005. Follow the links below to view or download FNMS documents.
