Workshops offer farmers key advice.

Farmers in the North East are being urged to find out whether their work could be exempt from new agricultural waste laws.

Free workshops are being held across the region to advise farmers on the regulations introduced last year.

The laws affect whether farmers can burn, bury, store, or use waste on their property.

But many of the day-to-day activities which produce waste on farms are exempt from the regulations and farmers need to register these with the Environment Agency before May 15.

Workshops are being organised by the agency and the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group.

Environment agency officer Jackie Hamer said: "The aim of our workshops is to provide them with more information about the regulations and to help them complete the registration process."

Workshops will be held across the region from March 20. For more information, contact the Environment Agency helpline on 0845 603 3113.
