Sustainability-enhancing innovations unveiled
AgTech provider Netafim, which recently acquired the Dutch greenhouse provider Gakon, is today using international agricultural machinery exhibition, EIMA, to launch a range of new products and announce its future joint activities.
The event in Bologna, Italy, is the first time Gakon-Netafim is publicly showcasing its joint offerings and expertise.
“Given our purpose of growing more with less and our mission to help farmers worldwide produce better, higher yielding crops, we are especially thrilled to enhance our in-house greenhouse offering and capabilities with the inclusion of Gakon,” said Gaby Miodownik, CEO and President of Netafim. “As the pandemic rages on and climate change concerns show no signs of lessening, global demand for fresh, healthy and safe local food production has never been more crucial. Through the inclusion of Gakon’s expertise and capabilities in the greenhouse arena, Netafim is now better prepared to help ensure a steady and more secure food growing solution.”
The new range of new products includes: Streamline X ReGen™, the first dripline to be introduced in Europe using recycled material; NetBow™, a container irrigation multi-outlet dripper arc; SOPHIA (PSS), a Spray Overcanopy PHytosanitary Innovative Application; AlphaDisc™, which offers irrigation system protection through a combination of precise depth filtration, a high dirt-holding capacity, and a modular design that adapts to changing flow rates and varying water quality conditions.
