Decision following last year's consultation on urea

2022-0060

This is a live and awkward time for all making decisions – concerned members have been in touch today asking for more details.

All we know is that a decision is still imminent – now indications by April 4th at the latest. Defra is acutely aware of extraordinary situation the fertiliser industry is managing and is accounting for this in its pending announcement.

Whilst we still expect Defra to confirm its intentions to support an industry led approach through Red Tractor, we have asked that the timetable for the expected delivery on the ground is adjusted to accommodate this very difficult period for members and farmers.
