The Rovatti effluent management solutions are reversing a problem situation into a positive management technique for farm owners or managers.

Farm operators are required to disperse effluent in an appropriate manner and with the Rovatti management system effluent can be treated and dispersed in a managed manner onto pasture land to act as a natural fertiliser.
