We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
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
Microbial Discovery Group excels in identifying antibacterial, antifungal and growth promotion properties to improve plant health and growth.
Feeding the ever growing population will become increasingly difficult as resources continue to become constrained or diminished. Microbial technologies will help to fill the gap through a variety of differing mechanisms including nutrient creation or release, pathogen and pest resistance, plant growth promotion and protection of the plant against environmental stresses....
There are different varieties different in size, colour and taste. Thanks to the development of new varieties it has been possible to obtain melons of better organoleptic characteristics. Its shape is different depending on the variety (round, eliptic, oval, etc) and the surface can be green, white or yellow.
The onion is cultivated all around the world and it is one of the oldest vegetables. The world production is of 67 millions tons of bulbs (FAO, 2008). The countries of higher production of the world include United States, India, China, Pakistan, Turkish, Russia, Iran, Spain and Mexico. The onion is cultivated in 175 countries in mild, tropical and subtropical climatic conditions. The onion is basically a crop of fresh season.
The potato started in the Andes and it is one of the crops of greater importance Worldwide. The potato came to Europe in the XVI century by two different ways: one was in Spain around 1570 and the other was by the British Islands among 1588 and 1593, from where it was expanded to the rest of Europe. The annual production is of 300 million tons of the fresh tuber expanded in 19.5 millions of hectares planted. Asia and Europe are the regions with bigger production worldwide, with more than the 80% of the production....
Tomato is one of the most spreaded agricultural products all around the world and even of higher economic value. Its demand is continuously increasing and with it, the crop, production and trade. The world production is of 85 millions of tons (FAO 2007) and the countries with higher productions are China, Mexico, United States, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Egypt. Continentally, according to FAO data, Asia participates with no more than 50%, followed by America with a 20%, Europe 15% and the rest comes from Oceania...
The xProxy® alert system is used by farmers around the country for grain bin monitoring and security in different aspects of their bins. Farmers use it to monitor the level of grain in their bins, to monitor their grain bin dryer fans for fault events, to ensure that the moisture level stays in the required range to keep the grain from rotting, and also to protect the copper wire on their grain bins.
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 world’s population consumes an enormous amount of mushrooms each day. To meet this demand, highly efficient and hygienic production methods are required to deliver quality mushrooms on-time. Because of their proven performance and reliability, TenCate materials have become the mushroom and composting industry standard for pulling nets.
For instance, the indoor composting process for mushroom substrate uses a lot of energy. High energy prices have pushed composting companies to look for ways to reduce...

Citrus fruits belong to rutaceus, they started 20 millions of years ago in the Asiatic South East. They grow in subtropical and tropical climates. The world production is estimated in approximately 100 millions of tons.
Cucumbers come from the tropical areas of South-Asia and they grow in greenhouses in different climates. They are smooth and the colour, depending on the variety, can change from light green to dark green, reaching a yellowish colour when it is completely mature. They produce good outputs in warm and cold climates. Under extreme conditions ventilation and heating systems are necessary. The bigger producers are China, Turkey, Iran, United States, Japan and Russia.
Prevents underbrush growth
Adequately blocks the light that promotes the growth of underbrush.
Unlike the polyethylene paddings, it is permeable to water, air and nutrients maintaining the quality of the soil.
Prevents water accumulation on the padding surface.
Lasts up to 3 cycles when installed on the field, reducing labor.
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.
The soil is an important natural renewable resource that for a long period of time is subject to erosion and intensive exploitation, which leads to the loss of fertile qualities. But with a reasonable technology of cultivation and periodic soil enrichment with the necessary elements, it is possible to maintain soil health. The soil provides environmental conditions for numerous microorganisms and serves as a medium for the growth of plants, thus providing plants with a place for development, nutrients, and water...
The sugar cane is a plant which assimilates easily the solar radiation, having a efficiency near the 2% of energy conversion incidental in the biomass. This capacity increases the commercial possibilities to the profit of numerous products to extract, in most of the cases of higher value and economic importance than sugar. The cultivation of sugar cane presents itself as an opportunity of high value against other types of cultivations. Nevertheless, this crop also suffers the problems of water shortage. Taking...
Over 40% of seafood is grown or cultivated artificially, which provides good quality and large quantity of protein for daily diet all over the world. Aquaculture is the alternate solution for majority populations, rather than wild capture.
FIFISH underwater robots provide safe and efficient solutions for farmers to monitor their precious. Compared with the traditional methods, which divers take water sampling, underwater robots are safer and ready to go 24/7, with less maintenance and smuggle free.
