BioNet. Agriculture Ltd.

Currently 10 metres of plastic wrapping must be manually removed from over 8 billion bales every year before use as livestock feed. Market research states that removing the plastic is ‘one of the most annoying jobs on the farm’. BioNet. have the solution, an edible biopolymer that saves the farmer time as the wrapping can be directly eaten from the bale. Furthermore, this reduces waste and the unique formulation allows for enhanced digestion leading to reduced methane emissions from livestock.
