These Rules, made by the Minister for Agriculture, upon consultation with the Central Agricultural Board under section 48 of the Agriculture Act, require farmers to establish and maintain farm forestry on at least ten percent of every agricultural land holding. One of the objectives of the Rules is to preserve and sustain the environment and combating climate change and global warming. Other declared objectives include: the conservation of water, soil and biodiversity; the protection of riverbanks, shorelines, riparian and wetland areas; and the sustainable production of wood. The species of trees or varieties that are required to be planted shall not have adverse effects on water sources, crops, livestock, soil fertility and the neighbourhood and must not be of invasive nature. Every District Agricultural Committee shall: identify land at the risk of degradation and establish measures necessary for ensuring its conservation including planting of trees; prepare and oversee the implementation of annual seedling production plan for the benefit of land owners or occupiers in the district. The Rules also contain provisions on enforcement measures and inspection.
