Fruit Farming Applications
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; ideal for organic or bio-rational crops.
The Agribon® bag absorbs the latex residues that detach the bananas when deflowering; this manages to reduce or eliminate the “Latex Stain”.
Frequent crops: Banana tree, Banana, Papaya.

Pesticides were commonly used for the pest control in farms since they have high and rapid insecticidal effects and enable us to increase yields of crops. However, the pesticides cause some problems: soil and groundwater pollution and residual chemicals in crops harmful to consumers. Recently, wider implementation of ozone sterilization in agriculture seems to be one of the promising techniques to secure the safety of foods.

Maintaining a high quality sanitation program to prevent the ingestion of microbiologically contaminated fresh produce is of paramount importance to all food operations. Food contamination can irrevocably undermine consumer confidence, elevate irresponsible financial risk due to product recalls, or even result in loss of life and business. Even a single contaminated batch of food, one poor or erratic output can destroy your company’s reputation. Due to its broad-spectrum anti-microbial activity and versatility, chlorine dioxide is the ideal biocide for every biosecurity program. It may be employed in various applications such as process water, hard surface sanitation and post harvest wash.
