Size doesn't matter on Réunion Island

Every now and then we get some nice footage submitted from the Island of Reunion, the small French overseas region located in the Indian Ocean about 420 miles east of Madagascar. Growers here have limited availability of arable land due to hills and mountains. With the help of consultants Jean Marc and Aurore Hoarau of JM Horti Consulting, the local industry is developing at rapid pace and new efficient modern agricultural practices are introduced to gain local food production.



JM Horti Consulting is a distributor of Asthor Greenhouses, Riococo Substrates and Hydroponic Systems drainage gutters. The consultants submitted a new video of a recent project in which all of their services were combined. See for yourself how they erected a small Asthor greenhouse with local workers and materials, from pouring concrete and driving the first piles to sowing the seeds.
