Understanding the Fertiliser Register

The Fertiliser Register, launched by the Irish government, is a comprehensive database that records and tracks the usage of fertilizers by farmers across the country. The register aims to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the type, quantity, and timing of fertilizer application on individual farms. This information is then utilized to monitor and manage nutrient usage, evaluate environmental impact, and promote more sustainable agricultural practices.
