ABSTRACT
The article announces that the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Welsh Assembly government have temporarily relaxed cross-compliance rules with a derogation allowing farmers to use harvest machinery on wet ground until October 4, 2008. The derogation applies only to harvest equipment and does not exempt activities such as ploughing, which would be bound by the normal Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition (GAEC) standard rules.
