Farmers can use fallow land more for fodder crops
According to the amt fur ernahrung, landwirtschaft und forsten (AELF) schweinfurt, the use of fallow land as ecological priority areas (ovf) and other fallow land for forage purposes in livestock farming is permitted as of today, july 1, due to the spring drought, especially in the north of bavaria. July the use of fallow land as ecological priority land (ovf) and other fallow land for forage purposes in livestock farming is permitted. This applies to agricultural land in all of franconia as well as in some other counties in bavaria. For flat outside of bavaria, prior approval of the AELF is required. The authority in schweinfurt is also responsible for the district of habberge and operates a business office in hofheim.
New in 2020, according to the office, is that farmers must informally notify the responsible AELF in advance of the earlier use, naming the affected field pieces, if the forage use of the fallow areas has already been stopped from 1. Up to 15. July. The report can also be made in ibalis via the new message function in the application.
