The Nitrates Directive). 2 Possible policy instruments, with some examples. 2 Simple presentation of the intended working of government policy. 2. (Reprinted with permission from Oenema et al. (2011). ) Economic instruments (stimulation) are intended to stimulate preferred production pathways. These instruments are common in agricultural policy, such as the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and are also used to stimulate innovative developments. Environmental taxes and tradable rights/quotas have only been implemented in a few countries.

In June 2003, cross-compliance became an obligatory element of the CAP, thereby coupling existing 32 Animal Manure Recycling environmental policies to agricultural income support, as implemented in so-called “Single Farm Payments” to farmers. There are two major aspects of cross-compliance in the Single Farm Payment: (i) compliance with 19 Statutory Management Requirements (SMRs) covering the environment, food safety, animal and plant health and animal welfare, including the provisions of relevant directives, and (ii) compliance with a requirement to maintain land in Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition (GAEC).

For example, copper (Cu) is added to the diet of growing pigs in many intensive production systems as a cost-effective method of enhancing performance and is thought to act as an anti-bacterial agent in the gut. Zinc (Zn) is also used in diets for weaned pigs for the control of post-weaning scours. In poultry production, both Zn and Cu are required in trace amounts. g. limestone added to the feed may contain relatively high levels of Zn and cadmium (Cd)). , 1999). Health risks from poor manure management include several pathways of pathogen transfer, of which local transfer of zoonotic pathogens to farm staff and neighbours in air, water, crops and vegetables is a well-known problem.
