These equipments arise as an answer to the Spanish farmers’ needs that must face not only different types of water, but also different qualities, and must improve the filtration and therefore efficiency in irrigation. Definitely, in Spain you will find the most advanced irrigation systems and the possibility of achieving an efficient, comprehensive and sustainable management of the most valued good we have in our planet: WATER. Regarding GREENHOUSES AND CROP PROTECTION sector, in our country we have the largest concentration greenhouses in the world; the so called “plastic sea” located in the Southern province of Almería, with 45,000 ha of crop under plastic. Intensive agriculture and critical weather conditions, especially in the South of Spain, have propitiated the growth of a range of manufacturers of equipments, crop protection materials and greenhouses, which have learnt to adapt themselves and to create specific products to meet farmers’ needs. If we bear in mind that Spain is the most developed horticultural market in the world, all these industries have developed as an answer to a thriving industry in our country. The Spanish manufacturer is known for his continuous innovation and creativity, always looking for answers and creating new products to launch to the market. About the POST HARVESTING EQUIPMENT, Spain is one of the world largest producers of fresh fruit and it is considered the best expert in fresh fruit and vegetables processing, classifying and preparation. Our main customer is one of the most demanding markets in terms of quality and service: the European Union. Spain is processing 90% of the total fresh fruit produced within its frontiers; while other countries with higher volumes only process 2% of their total production. The Post-harvesting manufacturers have had to adapt themselves to their customers (mainly fresh fruit and vegetable exporters) since the raw materials used are fresh products. It is one of the industries where our country is a leader. Subsequently the post harvesting machinery companies must get used to work for a very demanding customer, always requiring good presentation and enormous range of products. Technology level is very high within this industry, renovation and improvements in refrigerating systems, fruit manipulation, labelling, storage, traceability and packaging are continuous.
Within the Spanish agricultural sectors, the thriving sector is the LIVESTOCK EQUIPMENT, NUTRITION AND ANIMAL HEALTH. The Spanish laboratories of veterinarian products are at the world vanguard thanks to the use of the most advanced technologies in production. Most of these laboratories work under FAMIqs and GMP manufacturing regulations, established by the WHO (World Health Organization) that are closely followed by the EMEA (European Drug Agency for public and animal health). The Spanish manufacturers of livestock-breeding and milking equipment also are of a very high quality and meet the technical and legal requirements of the UE. Their greatest advantage is their ability to adapt products to different markets and each customer’s needs producing custom equipments with a comprehensive personalized service. While offering the same state of the art technology as the multinational companies we are better able to provide more competitive prices, greater flexibility and adaptability to customer’s needs. We would also like to mention one of the growing sectors during the last years, RENEWABLE ENERGY. This edition we want to make place to this booming sector in our catalogue. The Spanish manufacturers design and produce equipment for the collection and storage of residues (forest, animal, etc.) as biomass for their processing into clean a renewable energy.
