Safe disposal of crop protection residue

What is Phytobac®?
Phytobac® is a safe, sustainable way to dispose of crop protection residues from your sprayer so they don’t contaminate water courses or drains. The modular system is customised for each farm providing an automatic, closed solution with no waste.

How does Phytobac® work?

Residual liquid and wash water from the sprayer is pumped at a controlled rate, via a buffer tank, onto a natural bed of straw and top soil in a liquid-tight container. The chemical products are degraded by micro-organisms in the soil and the water is evaporated. Any run-off from the bed flows back into the buffer tank providing a completely closed system.

The Phytobac® system has three main modules:

  • A Bio-Bed – a liquid-tight container with a roof frame, roof panels, inspection tube and pre-mounted drain-and-drip pipe.
  • A Buffer Tank – a double-walled tank with pump, valves and a lockable housing for the control unit.
  • A Control Unit with Sensor – which automatically monitors and optimises the moisture level in the bio-bed by regulating the flow.

Why do I need Phytobac®?

Save time and money

A dedicated wash down area with a Phytobac system makes routine cleaning of equipment quicker and easier as well as reducing the risk of financial penalties or accidental contamination.
