cause exemption 5 says they can and also does not say how not deep they can plough to so all you landowners out there go wipe all the archaeology out.

Direct drilling is one of the principal causes of the massive water run-off from agricultural land during heavy rain, contributing to flooding and the pollution of water courses. There is also a knock on effect because less water is absorbed, heightening the effects of dry weather later in the season. Good for aerial photography but bad for actually growing stuff.
