Biobed features in Natural England Land Management newsletter

Our biobed features in the February 2013 edition of the Natural England Land Management newsletter, produced to keep people up to date with what is happening with the Environmental Stewardship schemes.

Tim has been working with Roy Hayes, the local CSF Officer, to tackle a problem identified by a local water company and has installed a sprayer filling area and biobed.

Installing a biobed is often a practical and convenient way to minimise surface water pollution by preventing the drips and spills in a pesticide handling area from contaminating water. Biobeds use a simple bio purification system to filter out pesticides and an enhanced microbial activity to breakdown pesticides.
