Setting the standards in crop nutrition – sound, up-to-date advice
Established in 1993 FACTS is the body responsible for both setting and maintaining standards of advice given by individuals on farm. Over time, the scheme has gained credibility within the industry as well as with other bodies such as farm assurance schemes, government regulators and environmental bodies.
There are some 2500 active FACTS Qualified Advisers throughout the UK.
Although a voluntary scheme, the growth of FACTS membership reflects how the agricultural industry recognises the importance and benefit of qualified advice to promote farming systems that optimise crop nutrition and protect the quality of soil, water, air and farm biodiversity.
