BMP 15.- Perform optimised waste management (packaging, crop residues, effluents, emptied pesticide containers, etc.)

Inorganic waste – such as used pesticide containers – contain residues which must be appropriately managed, for example, by following container management procedures and ensuring the appropriate rinsing, storage and eventual disposal of containers in special collection points.

10.- Avoidance of contamination (local and diffuse)

25.- Performance of a convenient waste management and pollutants resulting from the activity of the farm


1.- Enhancement of Agro-biodiversity (enhance Habitats for birds; enhance soil fauna; increase fauna over the soil and edaphic fauna; enhance landscape diversity; provide ecosystem services such as pollination of crops, opportunities for recreation, …)

7.- Improvement of water quality

7.- Effectiveness working time

The implementation of this BMP can increase the working time (it will be necessary to have more time to manage waste).

8.- SI – Satisfaction Index

The implementation of this BMP will have a positive influence on the farmer’s perception.

20.- Farm’s connection with the environmental network

Although the implementation of this BMP will not have an influence on this indicator, the relevance to belonging to an environmental network can imply the obligation to follow more strict controls on waste management.

21.- Biodiversity structures (nests, hives, spider webs, etc.)- habitats

A more controlled management of waste on the farm can minimise the amount of toxic products on that farm and lead to the improvement of this indicator.
