The Phytobac┬« was developed by Bayer CropScience and Beutech Agro. With the Phytobac, you can process residues of plant protection products in a responsible manner. This allows you to prevent possible emissions to the surface water or sewer. Beutech Agro offers a ready-made, sustainable solution. Once installed at your company, operation of the system is fully automatic. No construction permits are required for placement of a Phytobac. You will need to notify the municipality or local authority before installation, however.

PREVENTION OF POINT-SOURCE EMISSIONS AND PROTECTION OF THE GROUND AND SURFACE WATER

plant protection products help to deliver a healthy harvest, but should not come into contact with surface water. With the right approach, you can make a major contribution to the protection of ground and surface water. You will be supported in this by the Phytobac system - an organic approach to handling residue streams from plant protection products.

BENEFITS OF THE PHYTOBAC SYSTEM

Filling and cleaning of field-spraying equipment is one of the daily tasks involved in farm management. This task requires a lot of care and attention, as it is important to ensure that residues of plant protection products do not enter the surface water or sewer.

PHYTOBAC - A MILESTONE IN SUSTAINABLE WATER MANAGEMENT

Phytobac forms a closed system in combination with your filling and cleaning area and therefore prevents plant protection products from entering the surface water. This way Phytobac is a useful addition to a sustainable business operation and sustainable water management. Phytobac also facilitates the optimisation of agricultural work processes. 

PROVEN CONCEPT

The principle of the Phytobac is based on the biobed. The biobed is based on the function of active soil life. The sturdy plastic container is filled with a mixture of straw and soil. This soil comes from the top layer of the plots of land at the business where the Phytobac is being installed. The top layer contains soil life that is already accustomed to the plant protection products used by the business.

THE MICRO-ORGANISMS

The mixture of soil and straw ensures optimal soil life. The micro-organisms break down plant protection products when the top layer of the Phytobac is kept moist. In this way, the Phytobac processes your residual liquids and cleaning water fully automatically.

FULLY AUTOMATIC SYSTEM

The Phytobac is a completely closed system and works fully automatically, without any residual waste. You can process residues of your plant protection products safely and completely.
