Farm waste management involves the responsible storage, collection and disposal of all farm waste and the preparation and implementation of a farm waste management plan.
Waste in horticulture represents the by-products of production. The best way to manage waste is to use resources efficiently. For instance, optimal use of water, nutrients and energy limit the waste of water, nutrients or energy inputs used in the production of the crop.
Through the Hort360 Waste module you will come to understand where in your production systems waste is occurring and build action plans to address these issues.
Hort360 is the best management practice program for horticulture. It is an online risk assessment tool designed to give you a 360-degree view of your farm business operation. Hort360 is accessible via a Growcom facilitator and/or your own login (complete and submit the registration form https://bit.ly/2WDLMaN)
By participating in Hort360 you will have the opportunity to access on-farm technical support, on-farm training, professional networks and certification against Freshcare Environmental. All this will enable you to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, improve productivity and product quality, and build wealth.
