A number of technical specialists from DEFRA and its agencies contributed to the content of the new Code of Good Agricultural Practice. The publication updates the previously published codes of practice for water, soil and air which have been periodically updated for the past 20 years. Therefore, the total cost of producing the new Code of Good Agricultural Practice is not readily available.

DEFRA has not yet incurred any costs for printing and distributing the Code of Good Agricultural Practice. The publication is available for download, free from DEFRA's website. Hard copies are currently being printed and are available to order free of charge from The Stationary Office.
