The article reports that Herefordshire farmer John Chinn, who has been fined more than £12,000 by Great Britain's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for pollution offences in the past, is now working with the agency to reduce erosion on his vegetable and root cropping farm. Being prosecuted by the Agency on three separate occasions, Chinn was invited to join the steering group of his local Catchment Sensitive Farming Initiative, a project that encourages a partnership approach with farmers to deal with diffuse pollution.
