|French term or phrase: bassins des bandes roulantes|
|D’après l’étude préliminaire sur les infrastructures du projet, les micro-retenues et leur bassin, les bassins des bandes roulantes et les différentes citernes autorisent la culture de surfaces supplémentaires grâce au nouvel apport en eau.|
Thank you for your help!
|roadway balance ponds / drainage basins|
OK, so now we know that 'bande roulant' = 'bande de roulement', and seems equivalent to 'bande bétonnée' = some kind of concrete track area, presumably for agricultural vehicles. Like any large impermeable area (cf. motorways, airports), these will need 'balance ponds' — though in this instance, as it seems on a relatively smaller scale, you might like to refer to them simply as 'drainage basins'. Either way, it now becomes clear what these 'bandes roulantes' are and why the associated ponds / basins retain water.

Conveyors can be a continuous belt or a series of separate receptacles.
A conveyor belt is fitted with a continuous belt, often rubber, composite or metal mesh segments.
In this case, because it is agro related for produce conveyance, they would normally be called "trays".
- " .... the trays on the conveyor (belt) ...."
