Nutrient Management

Bega provides beneficial nutrients for pasture growth at sites where factory water is reused by irrigation.  An extensive nutrient management program monitors ground moisture level, irrigation needs, nutrient distribution, soil health and ground water to assess overall environmental impact and improve nutrient management.

A nutrient management and groundwater report is prepared annually for sites that directly irrigate wastewater.  The report is presented to farmers in the program and the EPA.
