Physiographics and farm management

Physiographic Zone Technical Sheets have been written for farm professionals and decision-makers and are due to be published shortly. They describe generalised water quality risks associated with individual physiographic zones, and will be divided into two main parts:

Part 1 – gives a general introduction to each zone, including a map of the zone and its variants

Part 2 – details zone characteristics that affect water quality and summarises mitigation aims

A companion User Guide is also currently being developed to provide more detailed supporting information, including definitions of terms and supporting data.

These documents build on the knowledge obtained from the Scientific Reports. They provide detailed information for the practical application of physiographic zones to farm management.
