Agriculture and the agribusiness market sector experience many similar problems to the civil and environmental markets, although often on a smaller scale.
Preventing erosion. Soil erosion can lead to surface water run-off and siltation of water courses; erosion prevention techniques are important to overcome this. Additionally, effective and reliable channelling works are needed for irrigation or land drainage purposes.
Maccaferri storage and filtering solutions. Our geomembranes and drainage geocomposites are used to construct storage lagoons and attenuation ponds within agricultural facilities. Dewatering slurries and agricultural by-products can also be made more efficient through the use of our dewatering tubes and bags. These filter solids from the slurry, capturing them within the tube, ready for use or disposal as needed, but without the problem of great volumes of liquid and difficulties of transportation.
