Soil tests are an accurate way of collecting information about your soil and supporting your management decisions on soil fertility and plant nutrition.
The closed periods are rules on when you can spread manufactured fertilisers and also organic manures with a high readily available nitrogen content. These only apply to land inside of an NVZ.
Trading Standards check that farms are correctly registered for the appropriate Feed Hygiene Regulation, storage and preparation of animal feed, and items of cross compliance.
These are predominantly run by the RPA, or may be contracted out to inspectors who work for Hallmark.
Occasionally inspections may be run by someone from the APHA (Animal & Plant Health Agency)
RPA inspections are full cross compliance inspections of the land that is used to claim payment through the Basic Payment Scheme.
Many of the Environment Agency inspections are done on a risk basis. They are continually testing and collating data on main watercourses that have a high/increasing level of nitrates and or phosphates.
Diversifying your farm means more legislation, make sure you're up to date with the regulations.
