Berry Hill is a Mexican company specializing in strawberry cultivation year-round and prioritizing sustainable farming practices. Over the last couple of years they expanded from a 1 hectare to a 6 hectare greenhouse facility. With the aim to increase their cultivation's sustainability, quality, and profitability, they decided to grow their plants in an oscillating growth system of the Spanish company New Growing Systems.
The Berry Hill facility is equipped with high-tech equipment, such as an irrigation water chiller and a nursery for growth and self-supply of high-quality young plants. In realizing this ambitious plan, Berry Hill contacted the Spanish company New Growing System. "In addition to hydroponic cultivation advantages in terms of quality and performance, our oscillating NGS system makes it possible to grow strawberries at height, with cultivation lines going up and down to facilitate harvesting and maximize space," the team with NGS shows.
"The NGS-berry system enables the team to grow with a high density of 30 plants/m2, resulting in a high yield." Once the existing production surface is optimized and stabilized, the goal is to increase the cultivation area up to 20 hectares.
Aware of the significance and magnitude of the Mexican market, New Growing System is participating in Expo Agroalimentaria, the main agriculture event in Latin America which is held in the State of Guanajuato, Mexico, between November 9-12. "We continue to develop new technologies for strawberry cultivation with the aim to meet increasing needs for intensive and sustainable agriculture in many regions worldwide."
