Agroherni considers innovation in all its processes as a key factor to success in an increasingly competitive market, and in its interest in improving and maintaining itself at the forefront of innovation in agriculture by opting for the optimisation of water resources, which, in addition to entailing a reduction of the environmental impact of our activities, will entail a reduction of production costs and increased productivity of our crops, making production cheaper and thus allowing the development of a greater and better market supply offer.
The R+D+i policy followed in recent years by Agroherni is the result of understanding R+D+i as a catalyst for change, as a tool for continuous improvement which motivates our human capital to generate new ideas for improving productivity parameters, quality of our products and services and the satisfaction of our employees and customers.
We understand the R+D+i of our company as a process of development and continuous improvement of productivity, product quality and the satisfaction of employees and customers.
The innovation in our processes is the key to success.
Agroherni has participated in the CDTI (CENTRE FOR TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT) project offering its facilities for tests and trials which have ensured the verification of the technological systems which allow for the comprehensive control of water consumption and likewise allows for the automatic control of crop development and needs.
The objective of these activities has been the testing of all the functionality of the developed systems, especially those related to climate management and irrigation.
We have the verification of the technological systems which allow for the comprehensive control of water consumption and likewise allows for the automatic control of crop development and needs and the reduction of tedious tasks that had previously been done by hand, such as for example the opening and closing of windows in the greenhouses.
Our team of agronomists is conducting a study in collaboration with
CSIC (Spanish National Research Center)
in order to improve and control more effectively those variables in crops pigmentation .
Baby leaf in protected greenhouse:
On this trial, those baby leaf varieties which are very sensitive to Midiu are grown in PE trays, under our meshed greenhouse. In order to control that disease, only treated water coming out from a machine that produces chlorine from common salt, is used. This treated water is then injected into the irrigation system, converting it into a disinfectant liquid that acts by contact and leaves no residue on the treated leaf.
