Allows the seepage of the water, air and light needed for the growth of the plant.
Generates a micro-climate that promotes better yields and quality of the crops.
Minimizes or even eliminates the use of agro-chemicals in the crops. Ideal for organic or bio-rational producers.
Adds value to the crops in export markets.
Main crops: Melon, Pumpkin, Watermelon,...
Bio-rational fruit protection
Non-woven fabric bag designed for the protection of individual or clustered fruits.
Performs sheathing which guarantees that no insect or plague comes in contact with the fruit isolating it from the exterior.
Unlike polyethylene bags, it is reusable up to 4 times
Generates a micro-climate that promotes the growth and quality of the fruit.
In Banana Trees and Bananas, it succeeds in moving forward the harvesting by 2 weeks.
Protects the fruit without the use of agro-chemicals;...
Protection against Frosts
Reduces drastic temperature changes
Drastically reduces frost damage by cushioning sudden temperature drops.
By providing a micro-climate with greater temperature than that of the environment, reduces harvesting time.
Main crops: strawberries, lettuce, flowers, melons, watermelons, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, among others
The Toptex protection fabric to safely cover potatoes is closely linked to a higher yield of the potato harvest due to reduced mass and starch losses. Its water shedding quality, which safely protects the potatoes from precipitation, characterizes the Toptex protection fabric for potato piles.
A secure covering with Toptex protection fabric for wood chips enhanced the storing of wood chips at a dry and cost effective level. An optimum energy yield is achieved when safely improving the storing of the wood chips before taking advantage of their energy characteristics.
The Toptex fabric is a high grade membrane to protect straw, sugar beet and potato harvests from frost and rain, thereby reducing the amount of clinging clay on beets or potatoes and efficiently leading to less cleaning water needed in the process. On top of this, dried harvests offer a higher yield for the farmer and better quality for the consumer.
The Toptex protection fabric safely protects the high value of a sugar beet harvest by keeping any negative influence of frost at bay. Toptex fabrics can be easily installed and placed either manually or via dedicated machinery on the sugar beet harvest during the external storage time on the fields.
The date palm trees are from the Palmaceae family. They come from the Persian Gulf and they grow in the arid and subtropical regions. The main producers are Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq and Algeria (source: FAO). Its fruit, the date, make bunches of until 25 kg of mature fruit and it reaches it whole development in several months. It has an oval shape, it is smooth and with a long and grooved seed. In some countries, the fruits are covered with paper bags to protect them from the elements (rain,...
Precision agriculture is no longer a new term in crop production. It is now a widely accepted practice. Aerial imagery is a key component in utilizing precision agriculture techniques for the management of farmland. The GeoVantage Imaging System provides high-resolution, orthorectified images that are used by Cooperatives, Ag Service Providers (ASPs), Crop Consultants, and Growers to:
Create management zones
Evaluate the effectiveness of fertilizer applications

TenCate Geotube technology is used for agriculture applications to reduce the waste in lagoons and utilize the contained nutrients for crops. This dewatering technology reduces the lagoon size by 50%, reduces labor and energy for land application by 50-70%, stores contained nutrients until needed for crops, provides higher quality flush water and reduces the odor and insect problems normally encountered. Over time, these solids dry in the dewatering containers, making the contained nutrients easier to transport...
Why regulation of your greenhouse climate is important.
As a horticultural entrepreneur, you understand better than anyone that the greenhouse climate has an immense influence on the condition of your crops. Air temperature, humidity, CO2 content and the proper balance of growing lights are essential conditions for a healthy and vigorous crop. By regulating your greenhouse climate in a proper manner, you reduce the chance of disease and plagues and you ensure the quality of your production. Moreover, you save...
Use KISTERS solutions for gathering of meteorological, soil, and other timely crop data from the field. Easily remove the difficulties in comparing statistics and validating information collected for the monitoring and measuring of agricultural production.
Why efficient irrigation is important.
Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase...

Nicolon Shade Cloth Fabrics shade horticultural plants grown in commercial nurseries and greenhouses. Manufactured in widths ranging from six to 17 feet (1.80 to 5.20m), Nicolon shade cloth fabrics add beneficial cover for agricultural crops and livestock and can also function as industrial debris nets.
Why regulating your energy consumption is important
A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy...
Why managing company information is important
Managing your horticultural company demands insight into various processes. For the cultivation of your crop, you collect information about the greenhouse climate and water and energy use. In addition, you als to deal with data about labor productivity, costs, inventory and planning – among other things. Good control of production and quality, along with the management of costs and yields are essential for your company profit. This means that all the information from...
