Water Wise Farming

‘Work with the agricultural industry to reduce the loss of pollutants into watercourses’

Farming is the largest land use within the catchment of the River Dee and the backbone of the rural community.  Everyday farms are working with soil and nutrients to provide us with the food we eat. Unfortunately, these are also two of the biggest pollutants damaging the water environment.

Through our Water Wise Farming programme, we work confidentially with busy farmers to identify new practices and investment needed to keep nutrients and soil in the areas where they benefit the farm business and out of the River Dee.
