During the Sival show that takes place this week in Angers, France, various French companies showed their newest innovations. Before sending out the total photo report tomorrow, today we present the first four.
By using VR, the team with Premier Tech showed what happens in your substrate. This way they want to make it more clear to growers how their Agtiv and Pro-Mixmc lines help the quality of the crop. Agtiv is a biostimulant solution to enrich the soil and increase the plant resistance. The company pays a lot of attention to the soil life with a special focus on the mycorrhizae products since these contain a high density of viable spores. "Depending on the varieties, the types of plants and farming routes, mycorrhizae inputs present many advantages: quicker rooting from the first weeks, better absorption of nutrients and water, and higher yields", they say.
The team with NewHeat sees opportunities for using solar power to provide greenhouses with heat! The panels needed for this are way cheaper than the ones needed to provide electricity from solar panels, and that makes it an accessible solution.
The company RED (short for Rouge Engineered Designs) provides lighting solutions and solutions to automate this. Their SOLSTICE software solution gives the possibility to automatically adapt the lighting strategies according to the climate in the greenhouse.
The Polyclim NG is the updated climate computer of Anjou Automation. This one is 100% compatible with the current supervision and is equipped with 1 month data archival, a full colour touch screen and is accessible from PC, smartphone and tablet.
