Charles Mayson, Chairman of CXCS Ltd visited Plumpton College in East Sussex last week to lead talks with third year Agricultural Students. During the talks Charles discussed the history of Cross Compliance arrangements, suggestions for how to assemble a Nutrient Management Plan, the impact and requirements of NVZ legislation and a thorough line by line explanation of each of the cross compliance regulations. Charles then generated some class interaction with a problem solving section which was very well contributed to by the students and rounded off the session with a Q&A which gave the students the opportunity to clarify any points from the discussion or ask any further questions that they had. Andrew Ellis, Agricultural Lecturer from Plumpton College recaps on the day.
