Star Roses, a satisfied user of Hoogendoorn iSii Compact:

Technical level in Ecuador and Latin America on the rise due to customer demand

Star Roses, based outside of Quito, Ecuador, has been using Hoogendoorn technology installed by Nitzan Agro Systems for less than six months and are already seeing the positive results of having the best equipment in the region installed at their farm.

At Star Roses, they have purchased a top of the line irrigation system installed by Nitzan and controlled by the irrigation computer from Hoogendoorn: the iSii Compact. This irrigation system has helped the production manager of the farm to control and maintain the EC and pH level on every irrigation cycle and to have the peace of mind that their plants are receiving the precise amount of water and fertilizer without any waste.

Diego Negrete, owner of Star Roses claims: “We have not cut the first flower since the equipment has been installed, but we already see stronger, thicker and healthier stems and leaves. Based on our extensive experience, we know that we will have better flowers this cycle. This equipment has given us the control that before was unachievable.”

Thanks to this project, which is being used as a reference by many other flower breeders in the region, the technological level in Ecuador and Latin America continues to grow to meet the high quality standards of purchasing customers worldwide. Hoogendoorn is very pleased to be part of this growth and to bring the best automation solutions to our partners and customers in more than 70 countries.
