Regenerative Wheat Standards

The Green Farm Collective Scheme Standards

The Green Farm Collective mission is to build a community that invests in and offsets personal and business environmental footprints in nature-enhancing projects. 

Our network of British farmers are creating and managing nature and carbon-enhancing projects on their farm through adopting practices which encourage nature, build soil health and increase carbon storage and protect the countryside's watercourses. 

The Scheme standards

The Scheme consists of a set of standards which farmers, who are an approved member of a baseline scheme, apply to join and agree to adopt and comply with through self-assessment, reviews, and independently conducted spot-checks.  The standards include:

  • written, established, and implemented soil management plan, long-term cropping plan, plant health policy, biodiversity policy, and water management policy

  • a nutrient management plan

  • no more than 180 kg/ha total nitrogen

  • maximum single dose of 45 kg/ha of nitrogen

  • no untreated sewage sludge

  • treated biosolids applied in accordance with The Safe Sludge Matrix and not more than once in 5 years

  • use of PAS 100 certified composts and PAS 110 digestate

  • no paper waste unless composed on farm

  • minimum of four month matured farmyard manure, unless mechanically composted

  • diverse crop rotation

  • minimal soil disturbance and root/ vegetable crops not grown more frequently than 1 year in 7

  • justified synthetic input usage & records maintained

  • no pre-harvest glyphosate

  • use of amino acid with, or within 7 days post spring applications of sulfonylurea herbicides

  • no herbicides after GS39 (full flag leaf emergence)
