Defra/Business Link Online Farming Service
The The Defra/Business Link Online Farming
Service is a Defra initiative that aims to
lighten the regulatory burden on farmers, reduce the number of
duplicate requests for information, and offer innovative and efficient
ways of working online.
includes a number of online self-assessment tools that aim to help
farmers comply with a broad range of legislative requirements and to
improve their farm practices. These tools make reference to key
industry documents, codes of practice and legislation. Therefore to
make the tools more useful to farmers the ADLib
resource is used to link a broad range of documents into the
Defra tools. This means that as farmers work their way through the
various modules they have access to relevant documents and information.
This is not simply a case of linking to individual documents, in many
instances there are 'deep links' to specific pages or paragraphs that
are relevant to the issue being considered by the farmer at the time.
This results in a very powerful means of signposting farmers to the
most relevant information they need to run their business.
ADLib is also being used to provide guidance
documents within the Business Link Farming Guides. This
provides a simple way to access all the guidance and documents that are
linked into the Defra tools.
