For farmers and agricultural workers, understanding the crucial role of disinfection is paramount. DERFA cleaning products offer approved disinfectants that not only aid in preventing and controlling outbreaks of notifiable diseases but also ensure the overall hygiene of livestock transport vehicles and animal gathering areas like markets and fairs. This article serves as a helpful guide for selecting the right cleaning solution tailored to your specific needs.
In virtually all industries, maintaining a clean and disinfected environment is of utmost importance as bacteria can thrive on various surfaces. Many disinfectants are used individually or in combination with others, such as the pairing of hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid. The range of disinfectants includes alcohols, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, ortho-phthalaldehyde, chlorine and chlorine compounds, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, phenolics, iodophors, and quaternary ammonium compounds.
However, it is crucial to note that commercial formulations based on these chemicals are considered unique products and must be registered with regulatory bodies like the EPA or the FDA for safety purposes. When choosing a sanitising product, careful reading of labels and considering the intended use is recommended, as not all cleaners are effective or safe in all circumstances. Here are the main types of disinfectants to be aware of:
Chlorine and chlorine compounds
Quaternary ammonium compounds
Peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide
Other miscellaneous inactivating agents
Metals as microbicides
Flushing and washer-disinfectors
By familiarising yourself with these types of disinfectants, you can make informed decisions when selecting the most suitable option for your disinfection needs.

Selecting the right disinfectant is of utmost importance in the agricultural sector, as it plays a crucial role in preventing the outbreak of diseases, infections, and illnesses on farms. By utilising a high-quality disinfectant, you can avoid costly vet visits, disruptions in food distribution, and other troublesome events.
When choosing a cleaner suitable for agricultural practices, two key factors come into play: implementing a systematic, methodical, and rigorous cleaning program, and selecting the appropriate agricultural disinfectant for the task at hand. This specificity is vital. Although there is a wide array of commercially available disinfectants on the market, not all of them meet the necessary criteria for effective decontamination.
