The nature of the farm manure and the equipment used are the determining factors in the separation distances to respect for spreading. The distances proposed in the following table are a compromise between spreading practices and protection of other uses in rural areas. The use of sprinklers or cannons is prohibited under the provisions of the regulations of the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs. Farm manure must be spread in keeping with the separation distances appearing in the following table:
