Crop waste

While shredding crop is a major component of the crop rotation process, so too is the disposal of the shredded crop. A lot of waste is generated during crop rotation so having plenty of available waste containers is a necessity. To continuously shred crop it is important to have proper waste logistics in place. Considering every 100 m2 generates approximately 2 m3 of waste we recommend to have at least a 2,000 liter container in place for every such 100 m2 of crop.

For such containers a forklift would be advisable but this can also be done by shovel. A buffer container can also help increase crop rotation speed and ensures a smoother logistical process.
