Congratulations to Jim McMullan on the successful achievement of Fertiliser Advisors Certification.
“G & M’s commitment to professional development continues with Jim achieving FACTS certification. He is now qualified to advise farmers on optimising crop nutrition and meet environmental compliance. Intelligent Agriculture at work” commented Chairman Ralph MacLeod
Since 1993 FACTS has been the body responsible for setting standards, training and accrediting the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of those providing nutrient management advice.
There are currently over 2500 active FACTS Qualified Advisers (FQAs) throughout the UK. Although a voluntary scheme, the growth of FACTS membership reflects how the agricultural industry recognises the importance and benefit of qualified advice to promote farming systems that optimise crop nutrition and protect the quality of soil, water, air and farm biodiversity.
