Efficient irrigation for blueberry grower

Schrijnwerkers is a blueberry company, founded in 1969 by Rob Schrijnwerkers. Nowadays, this family business has locations in Horst, Overloon (Netherlands), and Weeze (Germany). Schrijnwerkers has two production sites in Weeze of over 75 hectares in total. The companies in Germany are known by the name Blueberry Giant and Valckx-Schrijnwerkers.

In 2017 Rob’s son Leon built a new nursery on the Overloon location for the propagation and cultivation of blueberry plants. The size of this modern nursery is about 8 ha. Schrijnwerkers’ blueberries are sold in more than 30 countries.

Precise control is of high importance
Codema B-E De Lier carried out the electrical and water technical installations at all of his locations. Blueberries are fragile plants and therefore precise control is of high importance. Codema B-E de Lier has been supplying to soft fruit growers for years and understands that this cultivation requires extremely efficient irrigation and fertilization.

A lot of knowledge and experience in high-tech
Leon Schrijnwerkers explains: "Codema B-E de Lier thinks thoroughly about the design and the development. Their installations are of good quality and last a long time. They have a lot of knowledge and experience in high tech horticulture and that’s noticeable. We have been doing business with them for thirty years. Although it is so busy in the horticulture industry, Codema B-E De Lier is still able to provide a good service. If I have a question, they follow-up quickly and handle it properly. I would certainly recommend them to other blueberry growers.’’
