FACTS Content & Suitability

FACTS is designed to achieve a high standard of soil and crop nutrient advice with a responsible attitude to the environment and safety.

It ensures candidates have the confidence and experience to provide advice in practical situations on the farm.

FACTS is an important qualification for all those involved in giving nutrient advice. For information we offer the England/Wales FACTS content (RB209) not the Scotland syllabus (SRUC Technical Notes).

Various farm assurance and environmental schemes demand that farm nutrient management plans are drawn up by FACTS qualified people.

This suits agronomists, consultants, sales representatives, farmers, environmental advisers and those involved with non-farm wastes being spread on the land.

Note: candidates are required to have considerable previous experience of fertiliser plans on farm so that they are familiar with a wide range of different farming activities, fertilisers and nutrient issues.



£748 (+ VAT) + £246 BASIS exam fee.

Total = £994   (includes course materials, lunch and refreshments throughout)

There is a 1% training fee discount per person when booking 2+ places (for groups of 5 or more contact the office for discount information)

Candidates will need to provide their own copy of RB209 (AHDB version), Code of Good Agricultural Practice and NVZ Guidelines.
